WE BELIEVE IN 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.

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 frozen yogurt eating contests against their favorite police officer, showing the lighter side of police officers in their community.

  • The most exciting kilometer of the tour is our last because we get to share it with our “Pedal for Hope Friends” who join us for the ride. The last kilometer of the tour is always reserved for the kids we ride for to join us and celebrate another successful campaign.

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!

You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.
