Nanaimo RCMP chili cook-off raises cash for Tour de Rock

Nanaimo Mounties hold inaugural chili recipe competition to raise cash to fight childhood cancer

Chili Con Crystal, I Mustache You Try My Chili and Debbie’s Not Deboring were chili variants on the menu at Nanaimo RCMP detachment’s inaugural chili cook-off, staged to raise cash for a good cause.

The event happened Thursday over lunch hour when detachment staff laid down their dollars to taste and re-taste offerings that varied in temperature intensity and ingredients.

No recipe was deemed a clear winner, but the event did raise $400 for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock 2019.

Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is an annual 1,100-kilometre bicycle tour across Vancouver Island that raises money for the Canadian Cancer Society to fight pediatric cancer and to support Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for children with cancer.
