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.
