A LOCAL RCMP officer helped raise more than $8,000 as part of Cops for Cancer Tour de North ride while on its new route this year.

Const. Kendra Felkar rode the more than 800 km journey from Fort St. John to Williams Lake in early September along with officers from other detachments across the north.

The ride helps raise money for research into child cancers and to send children with cancer and their families to Camp Good Times.

Felkar thanked the generous donors and Terrace residents for making the ride such a huge success.

This year’s Tour de North took a new route to allow more communities to take part. The plan is to alternate routes each year.

The new route took riders from Fort St. John through Dawson Creek, Chetwynd, Mackenzie, Prince George, Quesnel, to the finish in Williams Lake.
