More than 100 police officers and emergency services personnel are participating in this year’s tour to raise awareness and money for paediatric cancer research.

The Cops for Cancer campaign runs through September and into October, with money raised going to fund leading edge cancer research and support programs operated by the Canadian Cancer Society like Camp Goodtimes.
