Cops for Cancer

Together, we're changing the lives of children with cancer and their families.

About Cops for Cancer

As a partnership between first responders and the Canadian Cancer Society, Cops for Cancer has raised millions of dollars to fund life-saving pediatric cancer research and support children with cancer and their families. Since the program's inception, we've raised almost $48 million through Cops for Cancer cycling tours and fundraising events such as head shaves.

Find out how Cops for Cancer events can engage your community to help reduce the impact of childhood cancer.

Why we ride

Cops for Cancer began in 1997 with one police officer who wanted to make a difference. Today, it has grown into an incredible movement across the country that's changing the lives of children with cancer.
