Cops for Cancer - Tour de Coast
2019-09-17 09:24 PDT
Each September, following months of arduous training, over 100 committed law enforcement and emergency services personnel spend up to two weeks cycling across the province. The Cops for Cancer – Tour de Coast will embark on an experience of a lifetime starting on Sept. 18 and finishing on Sept. 26.
The Coquitlam RCMP is proud to have two riders representing the detachment, their families and the communities they serve. Constable Pamela Newman is embarking on her second year with the ride while this is Constable Brad Potter’s first ride for Cops for Cancer. Both have been training for the ride all year long and have raised thousands of dollars towards childhood cancer research and support programs.
"I ride because families going through a cancer diagnosis deserve all the support we can give them." said Constable Potter. This ride allows him to be part of the work to end childhood cancer diagnoses.
On Tuesday, September 24, 2019 the Coquitlam RCMP will host the riders and their escort team as they arrive at the detachment at 11 a.m. Please stop by and join us as we cheer on Constable Newman and Constable Potter and the entire Tour de Coast team.
Date & Time: Tuesday, September 24 at 11:00 a.m.
Location: In Spirit Square, located directly across the street from Coquitlam RCMP detachment and Coquitlam City Hall.
Parking: Guests are directed to park at any unreserved parking space underneath City Hall.
