Aldergrove fundraiser benefits Maple Ridge camp for kids with cancer – Maple Ridge News

A fundraiser in Aldergrove will combine perogies with support for a cancer camp in Maple Ridge.

Amy Kelly is one of the riders in this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley ride, an annual cycling event where law enforcement officers cycle hundreds of miles to raise money for childhood cancer research and support programs.

Kelly is outside the Aldergrove Save-On-Foods at 26310 Fraser Hwy. Saturday, July 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to collect donations.

She also has the support of Aldergrove’s Veronica’s Gourmet Perogies.

A portion of Veronica’s sales that day will go to the fundraiser.

“Cops for Cancer has captured my heart since I first got involved in 2014,” Kelly wrote on her Cops for Cancer donation page. “The children and their families are wonderful, despite the difficult challenges posed by childhood cancer.”

The money raised from the annual Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley ride goes toward research, but also supports the activities of Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp in Maple Ridge for children with cancer from across the county.

Children who are actively being treated or who have survived cancer can come to camp with normal summer activities, as well as with on-site medical care they need.

Due to the pandemic, Camp Goodtimes is organizing a virtual camp from August 3-6 this year.
