June 12, 2024, Toronto, Ont. – Today, Vancouver Police Department Sgt. Dayne Campbell reaches Toronto on his solo ride across Canada in support of Cops for Cancer, and will be welcomed by Toronto Police Service (TPS) Chief Myron Demkiw, Solicitor General for Ontario Michael Kerzner and Chatham-Kent—Leamington MPP Trevor Jones. They will present a donation to Campbell for his efforts.

Approximately 15 members from TPS, Peel Regional Police and Durham Regional Police, along with bicycle officers from 52 Division and Traffic Services motor squad members will escort Campbell into TPS Headquarters.

In the fall of 2023, Campbell’s daughter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called myxoid liposarcoma. Campbell began his unsupported, solo, and self-funded cycling journey across Canada from the west coast on May 6. His goal is to complete the cross-country tour in 60 days, even though it typically takes most riders three months.
