| Cops for Cancer is a Canadian Cancer Society fund-raising activity where men and women police officers, paramedics, firefighters, security agents, police students, ambulance attendants and civilians agree to have their heads shaved to raise funds for the fight against cancer.
Over the past years, Cops for Cancer has had huge success. Several hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised for the Quebec Division of the Canadian Cancer Society. This year's target for Montreal is $80,000.
