A Campbell River graduate is riding in this year’s Tour de Rock fundraiser for cancer research.

Trevor Mack, who has been a member of the RCMP for the past 11 years, graduated from Timberline and is currently posted to the Comox Valley RCMP detachment.

Mack says he always hoped to some day be able to be a part of the ride.

“Having grown up in Campbell River, I saw this event start out in 1998,” Mack says.

“Since then I have been waiting for the opportunity to take part in the tour.

“While posted in northern B.C., I had a co-worker who taught me that ‘if it’s for kids, it’s worth doing.’ Those words have stuck with me no matter how cold or wet the weather, or how steep the hill during our training rides. This ride, simply put, is for the kids. It’s for the kids who are dealing with problems that no child should have to deal with.”

The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, helping prevent cancer, saving lives, and providing reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment.

It also allows for vital community-based support services for people and their families living with cancer; and advocates for healthy public policies.

Mack is appealing to the community to help him with his fundraising goal.
