Yorkdale Shopping Centre hosts 13th annual North York Cops for Cancer
event on May 9
TORONTO, May 9 /CNW/ - Since 1994, Canadian police officers have
volunteered to bare it all by shaving their heads in support of the Canadian
Cancer Society at Cops for Cancer events across the country. To date, this
event has raised more than $485,000 in Toronto alone to fund essential cancer
research, support and advocacy programs.
This year, Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair and Deputy Chief Kim Derry -
together with other participants - will have their heads shaved with the help
of Toronto Police Auxiliary officers. Yorkdale will match $5,000 of funds
raised by Chief Blair, whose goal is to raise a total of $10,000! The event
takes place at Yorkdale Shopping Centre on Saturday, May 9.
Join us to cheer on the brave volunteers as they shave their way to a
