Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley visits Abbotsford

Team of 23 cyclists stops by as part of nine-day journey

  • Sep. 26, 2017 2:25 p.m.

The Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley made a stop in Abbotsford today (Tuesday) as part of its 750-kilometre nine-day ride to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Activities included a visit to the Abbotsford Police Department, where 14-year-old Madison Frick – a student of Abbotsford School of the Integrated Arts – had her long hair cut.

Frick has been growing her hair for three years and has so far raised $1,100 towards her $1,500 goal for Cops for Cancer.

The campaign specifically raises money to help children with the disease.

Tour de Valley left last Thursday from Fort Langley and first travelled through Abbotsford on Saturday.

The tour involves 23 law enforcement riders from across the Fraser Valley.

The team is next scheduled for stops in Mission tomorrow (Wednesday) and Delta, Ladner and Tsawwassen on Thursday before concluding in Surrey on Friday.
