There are 16 members of the department participating in the initiative this year.
“We are honored to show our support for such an important cause and help those battling cancer in our area,” Chief Chaput said. “I’m grateful to all of the officers who are participating this year and am confident that our community will join us in helping our neighbors in need.”

About TeamWalk for CancerCare:
For 20 years, thousands of people from across the Merrimack Valley have taken to the streets of downtown Lowell each spring for TeamWalk for CancerCare, raising millions of dollars over that span to support cancer patients in need.
This year’s walk was planned for May 31 at LeLacheur Park, but COVID-19 pandemic forced TeamWalk to do things a little differently. This year’s event was dubbed TeamWalk on Your Terms and asked people to walk and raise money their own way. Donors across the Merrimack Valley responded by raising more than $363,000.
