Aldergrove Save On Foods raised $2,870 in one day for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society. On Saturday morning Aldergrove store manager Brent Domonkos (in the blue shirt) presented the funds to local Cops for Cancer rider Frank Donaghy (seen with his children in photo) and local Canadian Cancer Society representative Rachelle Perkin. This year's Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley takes place on September 22 to 30.

Cops gear up for Cancer Ride

This year's Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley takes place on September 22 to 30.

This year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley takes place on September 22 to 30.

Cops for Cancer takes place each fall, when over a hundred law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather as they cycle up to two weeks across the daunting terrain of Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley.

Why? Because the impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family is devastating. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and caring support programs to reduce its impact.

Throughout the spring and summer, riders and fellow fundraisers host all kinds of fun and creative community events to spread the word and increase awareness in support of children and their families living with cancer.

From golf tournaments, to barbecues, movie nights, pot lucks and pole sits, check the on-line events calendar (see: http://convio.cancer.ca/site/TR/CopsforCancer_BC/COPS_BC_?pg=entry&fr_id=21831) regularly for news and updates on Cops for Cancer events in your community.
