Policiers contre le cancer

Le personnel des services de police et d’urgence continue d’aider à faire progresser le programme Policiers contre le cancer en organisant des événements partout dans la province. Il peut s’agir par exemple de rase-thons, de promenades à vélo comme « Pedal for Hope », ou encore de diverses activités de collecte de fonds dans les écoles. Pour amasser des fonds au bénéfice de la lutte contre le cancer, les participants à ces événements sollicitent des dons de la part de collègues, parents, amis et membres de la communauté.

  • Alberta et Territoires du Nord-Ouest (en anglais)

    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.

  • Colombie Britannique et Yukon (en anglais)

    Cops for Cancer is an exciting annual event that takes place each fall, when over a hundred law enforcement and emergency services personnel from across the province brave all types of weather as they cycle up to two weeks across the daunting terrain of Vancouver Island, Northern BC, the coast of British Columbia and the Fraser Valley.

    Why? Because the impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family is devastating. Donations made to the Canadian Cancer Society through Cops for Cancer are used to fund life-saving research and caring programs like Camp Goodtimes to reduce its impact on families.

    The story of Cops for Cancer

    In 1994, Gary Goulet, an Edmonton police officer, met a young boy who was being teased at school because of his hair loss from chemotherapy. Goulet’s head was already shaved so he gathered a group of police officers willing to shave their own heads in support of the young boy with cancer. The act of kindness received media coverage, along with calls and letters from citizens touched by the officer’s campaign.

    Goulet received many letters, but one letter moved Goulet to do more. A mother whose daughter had cancer urged Goulet to continue his campaign by challenging other police departments to get involved.

    Goulet contacted the Canadian Cancer Society and the head-shaving event caught on. The program is now one of the largest community fundraising events for the Canadian Cancer Society.
