All funds help support children with cancer and their families

The Cops for Cancer pole sit outside Save On Foods raised about $4,200 was last weekend for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS).

Mission RCMP Const. Joannie Sidhu was hoisted to the top of the building with a scissor life on Friday and had a bird’s eye view of all the events and activities that happened below her throughout the weekend.

Entertainment included music from the Time Out band and belly dancing by the Troupe Majdoob group.

All monies go to fund important programs to help support children and their families on their cancer journey, said Mission CCS president Jimmy Logan.

“This includes providing transportation to cancer-related appointments, accommodation at our lodges during treatment, or enriching and empowering experiences provided by attending a session at Camp Goodtimes.”

The Mission unit of the CCS on First Avenue is currently closed and will be re-opening at a new location on Aug. 1.

If you wish to speak to someone from the Canadian Cancer Society contact the regional office at 1-888-222-2240. The unit’s new office is located at Unit 5, 32650 Logan Ave.
