International Beauty Pageants raise millions of dollars every year for children's charities. The Miss B.C. Program and Courage Productions Inc. are committed to this principle and, as a continuance of this mandate, to raise funds and awareness for organisations that benefit children.
The Miss B.C. Program's Charity of Choice is Cops for Cancer, a partnership between the Canadian Cancer Society and police officers, RCMP and emergency services personnel from across British Columbia. Each fall, Canadian law enforcement personnel cycle a pre-designated route in their region, raising funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs that support kids with cancer, such as Camp Goodtimes.
Cops for Cancer currently holds 4 distinct tours in British Columbia, but their hope is that the event will eventually be held in every province and territory across Canada. All funds raised by Cops for Cancer benefit pediatric cancer research and support programs nation wide.
To date, the contestants for Miss BC have raised nearly $200,000 for Cops for Cancer. Please support your favourite contestant and ask them for their personal online donation link.
