The Vancouver Island Real Estate Board’s parking lot was an exciting place as the entire Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock cavalcade stopped off for a rest break and to pick up a $4,000 cheque for children’s cancer research. VIREB president Guy Bezeau and past-president Jim Stewart made the official presentation to Tour de Rock member Chris Fernades. The money was raised through personal donations and by a donation approved by the VIREB Board of Directors.

The Tour de Rock is a 1,000-km fund-raising event featuring primarily police officers, the media and other members of law enforcement. It is one of four similar events organized by law enforcement officials across the province each year. Since its inception in 1998 the Tour de Rock has raised nearly $17 million for the Canadian Cancer Society and it is one of the main fundraisers for the society in B.C.
