The Canadian Cancer Society's Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast rode into North Vancouver Sept. 24. On day six of their nine-day, 900-kilometre tour, the riders were welcomed at a community barbecue in the City of North Vancouver's plaza, giving an opportunity for North Shore residents to show their support for both the riders and the cause.
North Shore law enforcement personnel who participated in this year's ride, which wrapped Sept. 27, included North Vancouver RCMP Const. Corey Abendroth, and West Vancouver police Const. Glenn Marshall and Griffin Gillan.
Funds raised from the initiative aid childhood cancer research and caring support programs for kids with cancer and their families, including Maple Ridge's Camp Goodtimes.
