Riding through Mission

Cops for Cancer visits Mission Record office in downtown Mission

The Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley Team stopped by the Mission Record Monday afternoon.

After riding for five days, the 22-member team, including two from Mission, were spirited and energized as they continued their journey to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research.

Mission RCMP Const. James Mason said the journey has been emotional and physical — emotional when he thinks of the children who are battling cancer, and physical as he rides up and down the hills of the Fraser Valley

Aaron Billesberger, who works for Correctional Service Canada, thanked the generosity of the community and said he is looking forward to meeting more students at schools and members of the community.

They began their ride on Sept. 25 in Abbotsford and have visited Chilliwack, Agassiz, Hope, and Boston Bar before coming to Mission.

Tomorrow the team will travel to Langley and Surrey, and will make its way to White Rock, Delta, and Tsawwassen. The team will finish the tour on Oct. 3.
