Prince George, B.C. –  The Cops for Cancer, Tour de North Team is  busy fundraising for its September ride.

The annual ride raises dollars to fund life-saving pediatric research and the award winning Camp Goodtimes, where kids with cancer can  take a break from their  cancer journey.

The team is closing in on  $38 thousand dollars  so far,  but that’s just under 20% of its goal.

The ride this year will  be on the south to north route, starting  in Williams Lake on Tuesday, September 12 with the team pedaling  bikes 120 kms  to Quesnel.

The team will arrive in Prince George  on  Wednesday  the 13th, and start the  185 km trek to Mackenzie on Thursday the 14th.

In addition to  stops in Williams Lake, Quesnel, Prince George and Mackenzie,  the  seven day ride will see the team visit  Powder King, Chetwynd, Fort St. John and Dawson Creek.

There are 27 members on the team  which is made up of representatives from the community, RCMP , Sheriff’s Service, BC Ambulance Service  and  Dispatch.  There are  four team members from Prince George.

While there are fund raising events  scheduled  in many of the communities,  the Prince George events include a Burger and Beer night at the Westwood Pub on June 8th,  a Golf Tournament   on July 29th  and  a  car wash on August 18th.
