The team – with close to two dozen riders – includes White Rock RCMP Const. Emma Dyer, as well as Surrey RCMP Consts. Hwan Lee, Martine Bembenek, Trish Douglas and Leandre Melançon.
Each rider on the tour completes the trek for a child, whose name they carry on their bike over the course of the journey.
As of Sept. 24, the Tour de Valley Riders had raised nearly $103,000 in support of pediatric cancer research and children living with cancer.
Since its launch in 1997 – the event was started by one police officer – Cops for Cancer has raised almost $48 million “to increase survival rates and support children living with cancer and their families.”
