Editor:

The Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de North 2011 would like to thank the community of Prince Rupert for its support this year, and over the past 10 years (!), and for the volunteers within the community that helped to make all the fundraising and awareness possible!

Congratulations to the member Rider from Prince Rupert: Jana Starr for contributing to an amazing cohesive team on the road and for her leadership skills in her community in fundraising over $5,700!

The Tour de North Riders completed 806km on September 9-15 from Fort St John to Williams Lake.  On the way, they met citizens and school children and spread the word of healthy, active living.  So far we have raised over $240,000 and we still have money coming in!  Funds raised go to pediatric cancer research, support programs for children and their families and Camp Goodtimes.

If you would like to donate and help children fight cancer please go to www.copsforcancerbc.ca – Tour de North …every little bit counts.

For more information on Camp Goodtimes – an award winning camp for children with cancer and their families, go to www.campgoodtimes.org or call Erin Reynolds at 250-564-0885 ext. 108.

Sincerely,

Erin Reynolds
