Photos: Cops for Cancer spin-a-thon fundraiser raises thousands

Officers from Delta, White Rock and Surrey hold event at Thrifty’s in Tsawwassen

Police officers from Delta, White Rock and Surrey spent several hours spinning their wheels outside the Thrifty Foods in Tsawwassen Saturday raising almost $5,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer.“I want to extend a huge thank you to Thrifty Foods and the community of South Delta for showing the upmost support once again for Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley and most importantly for the kids who we ride for,” said Delta Const. Terra Schmuland. “We could not do it without all of the generous donations that came in this weekend.

Saturday’s cycling was a very small amount compared to what they are training for.

In September, along with another 30 first responders, Schmuland and Const. Kim Loeppky from Delta, Const. Emma Dryer from White Rock RCMP and Const. Jeremy Pearce from Surrey Police Services, will be cycling more than 800 km during the nine-day ride across the Fraser Valley in the hopes of raising $250,000 for life-saving childhood cancer research and essential support programs like Camp Goodtimes. “Camp Goodtimes started last week and it would just not be possible without Cops for Cancer and all of the communities who support us,” said Loeppky. “It makes a huge difference for these kids and I’m proud to be a small part of that.”In the months to come, local first responders will continue to train and connect with their communities to bring hope for kids with cancer.
