More than $500,000 raised for kids with cancer in 2021 Tour de Rock – Vancouver Island Free Daily

The 2021 Tour de Rock has raised $505,000 for children and families dealing with cancer.

Music, alumni and residents greeted the 24th annual Tour de Rock as a team rolled into Sidney for Friday night’s finale.

Master of Ceremony Mena Westhaver thanked all sponsors and distributed double plaques, for 2020 and 2021, to all longtime donors such as Peninsula Co-op who arrived with a $15,000 check in hand.

Maya Evancio Barker, high school senior who cut 12 inches of hair for charity earlier in the day, handed over $40,388 on behalf of her school.

The annual Cops for Cancer bike ride raises money to support life-saving childhood cancer research and support programs for children and their families with a history of cancer. The final of the Canadian Cancer Fundraiser on October 1 comes after 12 days of community teams touring island cities.
