The Cops for Cancer Golf Tournament at Seven Hills was extremely rainy.

Rain doesn’t deter Cops for Cancer

A rainy tournament brought supporters to Seven Hills on July 12

The 5th annual North Island Cops for Cancer Golf Tournament brought 70 golfers to Seven Hills Golf Course on Sunday July 12.

The day began with a shotgun start at 10 a.m., and the 18-hole tournament was followed by a dinner, prizes, a 50/50 draw and a silent auction. At the end of the night $5200 had been raised.

Despite the Seven Hills Golf Course being covered in rolling mist and drizzling rain, the parking lot was full, and golfers persevered with rain gear and umbrellas as they transitioned from hole to hole.

2015 Tour de Rock rider John Belanger and wife Meg travelled from Campbell River to help out at the event.

A team of nurses, Diane Knight, Debbie Klatt, Brenda Isaac, and Libby Wardner said that they were enjoying the day and that their motto so far had been to keep their heads down.

The top team was Bill Jaques team while the Longest Drive for ladies was Tara Wilson.

The Longest Drive for men’s was Rory Bondue. Closet to the pin for men’s was Ron Klatt. Closest to the pin for women’s was Lepta.

This event is one of many Cops for Cancer events taking place on Vancouver Island, leading up to the Tour de Rock Sep 19. There will be a Tour de Rock Gala in Port Hardy on Sep 12 at the Port Hardy Civic Centre.

The Tour de Rock will see police officers and one media personality cycling from Port Alice to Victoria over 14 days, covering 1000 kilometres. The ride raises money for pediatric cancer research and programs for children who have previously had cancer. Those wishing to donate to Team Tour de Rock can do so through the Canadian Cancer Society’s website.
