After months of training and fundraising, the 2017 Cops for Cancer Tour de Coast is coming to Coquitlam on September 26th.

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 as part of Cops for Cancer. This year’s Tour de Coast runs from September 20th to September 28th and features 40 riders.

The Coquitlam RCMP is proud to have two riders representing the detachment, their families and the communities they serve. Cst. Sienna Cooke and Cpl. Neil Roemer have been training for the ride all year long and have raised thousands of dollars towards childhood cancer research and support programs.

Everyone is affected by cancer in some way, and I especially feel for kids with cancer, says Cst. Cooke. I’m a big supporter of raising money for Camp Goodtimes. I want to do something to help make sure kids with cancer can still be kids.

On Tuesday, September 26th, the Coquitlam RCMP will host the riders and their escort team as they arrive at the detachment at 11:00 a.m. Please stop by and join us as we cheer on Sienna and Neil and the entire Tour de Coast team.
