Ridge Meadows RCMP Const. Duncan McRae is fundraising for the Cops for Cancer tour

Const. Duncan McRae has his hair trimmed by Const. Mike Pedrosa before it was totally shaved off during a Cops for Cancer fundraiser Wednesday afternoon outside the Ridge Meadows RCMP detachment. The Tour De Coast travels from Maple Ridge to Richmond Sept. 18 to Sept. 26. Donate at copsforcancerbc.ca.

The first Cops for Cancer program started in 1994 when an Edmonton police officer with a shaved head posed for a photograph with a young cancer patient. The officer wanted to support the boy, who was being ridiculed at school because of his hair loss. Other officers joined and Cops for Cancer was launched.

Since its inception on Vancouver Island in 1998, Cops for Cancer has expanded across the province into four incredibly successful Tours which have raised over $25 million collectively to fund pediatric cancer programs and research.

Donate to Const. Duncan McRae at www.copsforcancerbc.ca . Donations can be dropped off at the Ridge Meadows RCMP Detachment, 11990 Haney Place, Maple Ridge. You can also e-mail Constable McRae at duncan.mcrae@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or call him direct at 604-476-6911 to arrange pickup.
