Two young children took center stage when they shaved their heads to raise funds in support of the annual Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer, Tour de Rock fundraising event. Local 1611 member Shandi Bannister’s daughter and our Victoria Branch Administrative Assistant Shona Dion’s daughter took part in this 2 week event that sees participants ride across Vancouver Island. The Tour de Rock originally started in 1998 and has now raised more than 21 million dollars for pediatric cancer research and support programs.
LUC (Labourers’ Union Charities) was proud to support these two brave young girls in their fundraising effort. Together the girls raised over $3,000!
