Oceanside RCMP Cst. Jordan Reid introduces each and every Tour de Rock rider

Tour de Rock rolls into Parksville Qualicum Beach

Oceanside RCMP has two participating riders this year: George Minshull and Jordan Reid

The Cops for cancer Tour de Rock riders rolled into Parksville Qualicum Beach on Thursday, stopping at the Town Hall in Qualicum Beach and at Thrifty Foods in Parksville with the day culminating in a Beer and Burger fundraising event at The Bayside, organized by Parksville Rotary and attended by about 200 people.

There was head-shaving and inspirational stories, none more gripping than the brave story told by Olivia Davis of Qualicum Beach, a 14-year-old who continues to battle leukemia with chemotherapy while playing rep hockey. More than $20,000 was raised on Thursday night. The money helps battle pediatric cancer and funds trips to Camp Good Times for youngsters battling the disease.

The Tour de Rock is co-sponsored by Black Press and the Parksville Qualicum Beach News.
