The cyclists rolled into Prince Rupert on Thursday to wrap up the 2012 Cops for Cancer Tour de North and the money kept rolling in as well.
Canadian Cancer Society community giving co-ordinator Erin Reynolds said this year's event had raised $242,000 to date, but the tour still hopes to meet its goal of $260,000.
The 20 cyclists left Prince George on Friday to begin the 850-kilometre journey to the coast. They made stops along the way for community events and school visits to raise awareness about cancer and collect donations.
The money raised will go towards cancer research as well as help fund Camp Goodtimes, a summer retreat for childhood cancer patients and survivors.
Three riders from Prince George took part in the tour this year -- RCMP officer Coralee Wilkinson and community riders Dennis Schwab and Sherry Pattie.
