Coming up this September, Cpl. Jana Starr of the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment will be participating in the Cops for Cancer annual charity bike ride. The ride route has changed this year and is starting in Fort St. John on September 9, 2011 and concludes in Williams lake on September 15, 2011. Cpl. Jana Starr has been campaigning for donations and recently received a cheque of $250.00 from the Northern Savings Credit Union and individual employee donations from the bank raised another $215.00 for a total of $465.00. To date Cpl. Jana Starr has raised approximately $2400. Cpl. Jana Starr’s husband and three sons promise to shave their heads if she raises $2,500, Cpl. Jana Starr will cut her hair very short and will donate it to make wigs if she raises $5000.00 and if Cpl. Starr raises $7,500 she will shave her head completely and again donate all the hair to make wigs. We will definitely have a photo of her new haircut once the ride is over. If you are interested in donating there are a couple ways you can do it. On line you can go to copsforcancer.bc.ca and select Tour de North to sponsor Cpl. Jana Starr, or you can attend the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment and make a donation here. All donations are tax refundable. All funds raised from the ride and all the riders go toward sending children with cancer to Camp Good Time.
