Grade 6 student Mason Wright and Grade 3 student Georgia Shirley have both been touched by cancer and helped contribute to Willway elementary’s Tour de Rock fundraising campaign.

The water jug is nearly full and comes in at 120 pounds, more than Wright weighs.

The money will be tallied and donated to the Tour de Rock riders on Wednesday when they come to Willway in Langford.

Langford is hosting a Tour de Rock celebration at Veterans Memorial Park on Wednesday starting at 1:30 p.m. Riders are scheduled to arrive at 3:45 for a barbecue.

Parking is limited at Veterans park, so people can park at Langford Rona and catch Langford’s trolley bus to the celebration.
