With top Coquitlam RCMP fundraisers like the Jail ‘n Bail cancelled due to Covid-19, Cops for Cancer riders are getting creative. This year, Coquitlam detachment is hosting a socially-distanced recycling drive to raise money for kids living with cancer.

Health concerns have to come first, but it’s important that we keep raising money for sick kids at Camp Goodtimes, says Corporal Ranjit Seehra, who, along with Constable Brad Potter, is one of this year’s Cops for Cancer riders for Coquitlam RCMP. We have come up with a novel idea. Now, you can return your recyclables to any Return-It Express recycling depot and make sure the money goes to life-saving research and programs for kids who have cancer.

The Express system requires that customers simply transfer their recyclables to clear or transparent trash bags. When they get to any Return-It Express kiosk, they must enter the Coquitlam RCMP’s registered charity phone number (604-785-4164) when they print their sticker tags.

Let’s face it, many of us have a pretty good pile of recyclables that we need to unload, says Corporal Seehra. Those sick kids would really appreciate the proceeds.

This year’s Cops for Cancer- Tour De Coast ride will be an abbreviated version of the annual event and will run from September 21-25, 2020. Starting today and going to the last day of the ride, you can donate online to the cause by going to this link and using your credit or debit card.
