Thunder Bay Cops for Cancer Event Saturday


"It's our belief that this could eventually cure later-staged metastasized cancer. People will not die from cancer, if our prediction is true.
New research around the world is making it easier to beat cancer.
THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Police Association, Canadian Tire, and the Thunder Bay Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society invite you to attend our annual Cops for Cancer head shaving event.

On May 10, over sixty men, women, and children will come together to raise funds and awareness in the fight against cancer.

This community event is coordinated each year by volunteer Event Chair, Constable Greg Stephenson, Co-chair Brad Comuzzi and is proudly supported by the Thunder Bay Police Association and Canadian Tire.

The Canadian Cancer Society are pleased to celebrate our 18th anniversary of Cops for Cancer in Thunder Bay.
