With 60 tiny beds, BC Women's Newborn Intensive Care Unit operates the larges, most specialized Newborn care centre in the province. BC Women's Newborn ICU cares for the sickest and smallest babies from around the province. Sometimes they weigh as little are one pound or are born as early as 16 weeks before their due date.
BC Women's is the provincial hub for newborn care, setting policy and care practices for newborns in community hospitals around BC. Up to 1,400 babies are cared for annually at BC Women's Newborn ICU. Approximately 70% of babies originate from across the Lower Mainland. Another 30% are born in community hospital from as far away as Prince Rupert and Fort St. John, arriving at BC Women's by emergency transport.

The Comox Military Family Resource Centre (Comox MFRC) is a registered non-profit society that works to support serving members and their families in the 19 Wing geographical area. A wide variety of programs and services are provided to the community by a multi-disciplinary team of core staff, trained volunteers, and partners in the local community.
In addition to our regular programs, we also partner with other 19 Wing units to offer special events such as the annual Rexspo Family Day and Family Halloween Party. These events introduce people to local sports & leisure groups, associations, clubs, and services. Many events and seasonal parties are a part of welcoming newcomers to the community and bringing people together.
Cops for Cancer was created from the idea of one man and has grown into an inspirational force engaging police officers and other emergency services and their communities in the fight against cancer. Since it began in 1994, Cops for Cancer has raised more than $50.4 million.
Police and emergency services personnel continue to help drive the Cops for Cancer program by organizing events throughout the province. The events range from head shaves to participating in bike rides such as Pedal for Hope to organizing various school-based fundraising activities.
Tour De Rock
The Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is a fundraising event that raises money for pediatric cancer research and support programs for children with a history of cancer. The Tour de Rock team cycles from one end of the Vancouver Island to the other, covering 1,000 kilometres and visiting more than 27 generous communities along the way.
Tour De Coast
Each September, following months of arduous training, over 100 committed law enforcement and emergency services personnel will spend up to two weeks cycling across the province. They will be welcomed by over 60 communities who will organize Cops for Cancer fundraising events and activities.
Every dollar counts and being a part of Cops for Cancer is so much more than a bike ride.
Mia's Moccs is a proud supporter of the Cops for Cancer Tour De Rock and Tour De Coast ride.
