The Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is a two-week bicycle journey in which a team of police officers rides 1,000 kilometers from the north end of Vancouver Island to the south, raising money to fight childhood cancer. Since 1998, the Tour has raised more than $15 million for the Canadian Cancer Society, which uses the money to fund pediatric cancer research and programs that help children with cancer and their families.
At the Victoria Kids Consignment Back-To-School Sale, we will be on a fundraising mission to support the Tour by specifically raising money for team member Const. Rod Fraser. Const. Fraser has pledged to raise at least $15,000 to help in the fight against childhood cancer and we hope that you will be able to assist him.
Here’s how you can help:
- Give a donation at check-out Our cashiers will be asking if you’d like to donate $1 (or more) when you ring up your bargains!
- Purchase blue sticker items Several clothing & toy items have been donated to the sale for fundraising. These items will have a blue dot on their tag. 100% of the proceeds received from these items will go to Const. Fraser campaign.
- A drop in the bucket Const. Fraser (& family) will have a table near the entrance with balloons, tattoos, stickers, etc. for the kids. Drop your spare change (or more) in their donation bucket to help boost the amount we can collect.
I think it’s worth noting that 78 cents for every $1.00 collected goes directly to pediatric cancer research and Camp Goodtimes, a camp for children battling cancer or children in remission. This fundraising campaign has one of the lowest overhead costs for an event of its kind. It seems these days not many of us haven’t felt the cancer blow in one way or another. This cause is near & dear to my family and I hope the Victoria Kids Consignment community reaches out big time.
