Prince George, B.C. – The Mayor of Prince George was among those hauled off to a public jail and bail event this afternoon, all in the name of raising funds for the  Cops for Cancer Tour de North.Those who were ‘arrested’  found themselves locked in a ‘jail’  outside  Northland Dodge.   They had to  call folks  to  put up the  bail money  to  secure their release.    Today’s event raised $17 thousand dollars.

The fun- fund raising  event is part of the  effort to raise dollars  to support the Cops for Cancer Tour de North  ride.

The team of riders,  made up of RCMP, BC Ambulance Service,  Sheriffs Service  and  some members of the community,  was making their way to Prince George from Quesnel  today having  started the tour  yesterday in Williams Lake.

The riders are making their way to Dawson Creek, where  the annual  ride will wrap up  on Monday of next week.

All dollars raised through this effort  will go towards paediatric cancer research, and Camp Goodtimes,  where  children on a cancer journey  can  take a break,  have fun and  just  be kids again.
