Cops for Cancer

Police officers across the province play a leadership role in organizing the Canadian Cancer Society's Cops for Cancer events by involving the community in fundraising and cancer awareness activities. To date, the program has raised more than $16 million across Canada.

Police officers and supportive citizens – both men and women – raise funds in a variety of ways. They may shave their heads and collect pledges from co-workers, friends and family. They may seek pledges for participation in grueling Ironman or marathon events. Golf tournaments, softball tournaments, BBQs, car washes, road races and coin collections are other ways to have fun and raise funds.
