Tour de Valley rolls into Langley

Cops for Cancer riders make stops at Shortreed Elementary, RCMP detachment, Cedarbrook Bakery and Coast Capital Savings

Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley rode into Langley Tuesday, on Day 6 of their journey.

Their first stop of the day was at Shortreed Elementary in Aldergrove which is a memorial stop for the riders. Junior tour member Christopher Sperger attended Shortreed when he was diagnosed with cancer. He died of the disease. His mom Teresa has been meeting the riders each year at the school.

The second stop for the 22 riders was the Langley RCMP detachment where the crew was  greeted by fellow officers. The next stops were at Cedarbrook Bakery and Deli and Coast Capital Savings.

Local riders are Langley RCMP Const. Aaron Kehler and Jason Ryan as well as Commercial Vehicle Section Enforcement officer Randy Fullerton.

Langley RCMP Const. Craig van Herk is once again in charge of organizing the tour.

Tour de Valley, one of four B.C. tours, is made up of 22 riders and 21 support crew. The group will pedal more than 800 km in just nine days from Sept. 25 to Oct. 3.

The riders don’t spend any money on accommodations, with the focus of all the money raised going directly to the kids.

Since 1997, Cops for Cancer in BC has raised more than $32 million allowing the Society to directly fund childhood cancer research and support programs.
