Reading Time: < 1 minute

A local firefighter plans to raise $10,000 for children battling cancer.

Josh Peterson, a lieutenant with CFB Esquimalt Fire Rescue, is one of 21 law enforcement and emergency personnel taking part in the 25th Canadian Cancer Society’s cycling event Cops For Cancer Tour de Rock. The ride runs over two weeks in September, with participants travelling 1,200 kilometers from Port Alice to Esquimalt, raising funds to support pediatric cancer research.

“It is a way to connect with children battling cancer, to help them know they are not alone in their battle – that we care, and so does the community,” he says.
