Tour de Valley stops in Hope

Cops for Cancer ride arrives on Sept. 25

The Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley rolls into Hope on Sunday.

Twenty-one riders will kick off the day with breakfast at Rollys Restaurant, between 6:45 and 8 a.m., before travelling up the Fraser Canyon and back. Stops along the way include Spuzzum Indian Reserve, lunch at Boston Bar Elementary School, Hell’s Gate Airtram, and a visit to Barry’s Trading Post in Yale at 4 p.m. Riders will finish at Telte-Yet Campsite in Hope at 5:30 p.m., where they’ll support Hope police officer Stephanie Vokins shave her head for Cops for Cancer.

Donations raised through the annual ride allow the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in pediatric cancer research, deliver information, and operate support programs like Camp Goodtimes at Loon Lake in Maple Ridge that improve the lives of children with cancer, survivors and their families. Donations are also used to provide financial aid for travel, accommodation and cancer drugs.
