Thanks from Tour de Rock rider

It’s been a great honor and privilege to ride with the Cops for Cancer 2011 Tour de Rock team and represent the City of Campbell River and the RCMP.

I would like to thank all of the corporate sponsors for their continual support over the past 14 years the Tour de Rock has been alive. As well a huge thank you to all of the independent stores and businesses that supported myself as a rider and many Tour de Rock events thoughout the summer. A very sincere thank you to all the public who made generous donations towards the cause and to the amazing people who volunteered their time to help make the 2011 Tour de Rock a huge success.

People think that the riders are the heroes, but let me tell you that the riding is the easy part. All of you are the heroes and are part of the team. With all of you, your generous support and donations, you have helped many children and their families battle thru some tough times. Times that one day with hope, dreams and inspiration, families won’t have to endure. Be proud of that! The 2011 Tour de Rock team is over 1.5 million dollars raised so far.

That is Awesome awesome, very awesome!!!

Thanks again.
