The annual Cops for Cancer bicycle tours are suffering because of the teachers strike.
School based fundraisers and events are a big part of the Tour de Rock and the other Tours.

The Tour de Rock will hit the mid-Island on the 28th, so there’s a chance the strike will be over, and school visits can go ahead

Donations for BOTH tours can be made at
