It’s the final fundraising and training push for Cops for Cancer riders around BC
For Sunshine Coast RCMP Tour de Coast riders Andrea Ceulemans and Nicole Hall the training has presented a unique challenge.
Hall says they’ve had to squeeze a lot of it in on their own.
Ceulemans adds that they’ve also had their share of crashes and mishaps.
The riders share motivations that are common to Tour participants. Ceulemans says cancer has touched her life in many ways, including losing grandparents and close friends. Hall says as a mom she’s grateful for healthy kids, and wants to do something to help families dealing with the impact of a child with cancer.
The biggest of the Sunshine Coast fundraisers is Thursday’s Red Serge Gala. Last year the event brought in over 42-thousand dollars.
The Tour de Coast starts next Wednesday, September 19th.
