WELCOME TO PEDAL OF HOPE

In 2005, the Peterborough Chapter of Cops for Cancer took on a new identity. The Pedal For Hope Cycling Team was born and local children fighting cancer had a new support team behind them! Local police personnel, a retired N.H.L. hockey player and a great crew of support personnel have been dedicating time to this worthy cause.

Each spring members of the Peterborough Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police, the Durham Regional Police Service, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police shed their uniforms, hop on bikes and pedal throughout Central Ontario visiting schools and raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer research.

Starting in late April for 3 weeks, the Pedal For Hope team cycles throughout Central Ontario visiting local schools delivering a message about kids living with cancer.

A presentation in each school takes on a serious side about how important it is to support pediatric cancer research. We show a team video, shave a few heads, cut a few ponytails and then turn on the fun. Students are involved in ice cream eating contests against their favorite police officer, showing the lighter side of police officers in their community.

Please take a few minutes to view our website.

We are proud of what we give back to our community, but can’t do it without the support of our ‘Pedal For Hope Friends’ and their families, our police services, our schools and our sponsors. Please patronize our sponsors when you can, it’s the best way that we can say Thank You for their support.

We hope to see you along our journey, it’s always nice to hear your friendly honk along our way!

Since 2005 the Pedal for Hope team has been featured in dozens of newspapers and magazines, received numerous awards, and been a guest in the House of Commons where they were invited to meet the Prime Minister of Canada. In 2015 they even held a massive head-shaving event that broke a Guinness World Record for the most simultaneous head shaves!
