Orangeville Police Raise Over $10,000 for Cancer Society

The Orangeville Police Service would like to thank the community for their support of the 2018 Cops for Cancer fundraising initiative, raising over $10,000.

Members of the Orangeville Police Service participated in a month long initiative to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. The initiative culminated on Saturday, May 26, at Orangeville Town Hall where participants shaved their heads as a symbol of support for cancer awareness. Auxiliary Policing Unit members, frontline officers, Court Security officers and civilian members were among the participants. Members of the public also participated in the festivities.

In total to date, the 2018 initiative has raised $10,434 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Anyone still wishing to support the initiative can do so by contacting the Canadian Cancer Society directly.

The Orangeville Police Service would like to thank the many members of the public and their community business partners who made financial contributions to the event.

“We are grateful for the ongoing support of our generous community”, said Chief Wayne Kalinski. “We are pleased to have been able to play a small role in the fight against this widespread illness.”

Orangeville Police Services Board Chair Ken Krakar was also on hand for the event. “I’m very proud of the Orangeville Police service members and the Auxiliary Unit for their contributions to this worthwhile cause. Cancer affects many people every day in our community. This initiative reinforces how the OPS is community focused.”
