For the 340 members of the Thunder Bay Police Association, May 8 was a pretty special day. That’s when they wrapped up a 5-year gift commitment to the Exceptional Cancer Care Campaign with a total of $65,000 given.

“It’s important to us to give back to our community – the community we serve each day,” said Greg Stephenson, President, Thunder Bay Police Association. “Cancer affects everyone and we’re lucky to have a Cancer Centre here for our region so people can be treated close to home.”

Back in 2012, the decision was unanimously made by the Police Association to make an initial gift of $30,000 and then give $7,000 a year for the next five years. “It’s a big amount,” said Robert Miller, Bargaining Chair, Thunder Bay Police Association, “but one we chose to commit to because it’s essential for buying new equipment and continuing research.”

All the funds donated come from member dues and it was important to members that their donation remain local. “I can’t say enough about how much we want to support our own community,” stressed Stephenson. “We support quite a few local initiatives, and always try to keep things local.”

Stephenson added that he hopes this commitment can inspire other groups to do the same for the Hospital. “If we can do it, anyone can.”
