Cops for Cancer at north Vancouver's Mosquito Creek Bar and Grill

Oct 3, 2007

By Catherine "Cat" Barr

The North Shore Outlook is delivered to over 60,000 homes in Canada's wealthiest communities, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, every Thursday - over 60,000 issues in print.


They were shaving heads and waxing legs up at Mosquito Creek Bar and Grill last week as the Cops for Cancer fundraiser challenged members far and wide. The event was part of the national Canadian Cancer Society's official campaign where officers hike, bike and yes, take it all off, in support of cancer awareness. In B.C., cycling teams take to the streets for 12 days stopping in select communities. Many here this night were proud to have been part of the action.
