Qualicum Beach staffers shave their heads to support Tour de Rock

As the Cops for Cancer

The fifteenth annual Cops for Cancer, Tour De Rock passed through District 69 this week as 18 police officers, media and guests cycle 1,000 km down Vancouver Island to Victoria.

They received a special welcome in Qualicum Beach Thursday afternoon, where 14 town employees shaved their heads and raised $1,500 towards the rider which has raised over $16 million for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The group rode 81 km from Comox to Qualicum Beach and Parksville Thursday and were off for the 51 km climb to Port Alberni the next day.

They are scheduled to arrive for a big finale in Spirit Square in Victoria on Oct. 5.
