B-Ball To Benefit Cops For Cancer

Local RCMP want to fill Easter Baskets for the kids

Released by Ashley Wray, UFV

 

he Chilliwack RCMP will be challenging our three local high schools to basketball games to raise money for Cops for Cancer.

 

The RCMP team will be comprised of local officers and all of the proceeds raised will go directly to Cops for Cancer.

The games will be played on Thursday March 29 at 7:00 PM at G.W. Graham, Thursday April 5 at 7:00 PM at Chilliwack Senior, and Thursday April 12 at 7:00 PM at Sardis Senior. "We would like to issue a challenge to all the high schools to see who can raise the most money," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "All of the donations given will be collected in an Easter basket and we would love for all the baskets to be filled."

Admission for the games is $5.00 per person with all of the money going to benefit Cops for Cancer. "This is a unique opportunity for our officers to engage the youth in some friendly competition," said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. "The kids are not use to seeing the police in this light and it should be a lot of fun for everyone."

Tickets can be purchased at the doors prior to the event.
