HEADS WERE shaved, burgers were served, money was collected and it all goes to a great cause.

A send-off barbecue took place yesterday at George Little Park for Terrace RCMP Const. Kendra Felkar, who will be riding in the 10th annual Canadian Cancer Society Cops 4 Cancer Tour de North next month.

Several men had their heads shaved, Mr. Mike’s served up burgers for a minimum donation and nearly $1,500 was raised.

Part of that amount also came from Brooke Clarabut, who went door-to-door to raise money for the tour and raised $579.

This year’s ride will be a new route due to requests for more communities to be involved.

The Tour starts in Fort St. John Sept. 9 and will travel through Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, Mackenzie, Prince George, Quesnel and finish in Williams Lake Sept. 15.

The idea is to alternate tour routes each year.

All money raised from the tour goes to support pediatric cancer research, for support programs for children and their families who are on a cancer journey, and to Camp Goodtimes which is available every year for children diagnosed with cancer and their families to attend at no cost.
