The impact of cancer on the life of a child and their family can be devastating. That’s why at Coast Capital Savings, we have been a proud supporter of the annual Cops for Cancer tour since it first began 21 years ago. By working together with local law enforcement and emergency service officers, we are able to raise funds for research into pediatric cancer and to support programs like Camp Goodtimes, a camp for children and youth who have been affected by cancer.
Every year, we look forward to coming together to help support youth living with cancer, by finding creative and fun ways to raise funds. We organize silent auctions, paper bike sales, collect donations, and have even had staff shave their head. With help from our members, in 2017 we raised $134,949.89.
So join us this year and help support this worthwhile cause, from August 21 to October 5, 2018.
