Fundraising pages for Prince Rupert trio on Tour de North now open

The Cops for Cancer Tour de North takes place
September 15-21 travelling along Highway 16
from Prince George to Prince Rupert 

The three Prince Rupert participants in the Cops for Cancer Tour de North have seen their fundraising pages debut on the Canadian Cancer Society's Tour de North page, marking the start of their journey to September's travels along the Highway 16 corridor.

As we outlined last week, the 2023 Tour de North officially launched at a Prince George event, which released the names of this years participants, including three from Prince Rupert.  

Two of those on the ride are from Prince Rupert Fire Rescue, along with a member of the City's RCMP detachment.

The donation pages are now available for North Coast residents to lend support:

Taking part from the City for 2023 include:

Kasper Green -- Prince Rupert Fire Rescue
(see page/biography here)

Jordan Venditelli - Prince Rupert Fire Rescue
(see page/biography here)

Jacque Van Wyngaardt -- Prince Rupert RCMP
(see page/biography here)

Constable Van Wyngaardt has taken the early lead in fundraising, with $721 raised so far towards his goal of $3,000. 

His entry into the Tour de North has been noted by the Prince Rupert RCMP Social Media stream.

We no doubt will see the same shortly from the Prince Rupert Fire/Rescue Department as they hail the summer training plans for their two members.

As for the participants, a summer of intense training will accompany the fundraising as they head to the starting line in Prince George on September 15th, the Tour ends and the homecoming for the Three Prince Rupert riders arrives on September 21st.

Follow the progress of the tour this summer through the website and Social Media stream.

On Twitter, as things ramp up this summer you can track the Tour through #TourdeNorth
