A bikini motorcycle wash at Top Rocker raised quite a substantial amount for a local case.

"The Badlands Hellraisers Roller Derby team actually did the bike wash and the idea was we were going to split the proceeds between the Drumheller Cancer Centre and the Roller Derby team. At the end of the day they did 67 bikes, raised $675 and rather than splitting the proceeds they donated their half to the Drumheller Cancer Centre as well," explained Top Rocker owner, Linda Buchamer.

The Badlands Hellraisers weren't the only ones to donate funds to the Drumheller Cancer Clinic.

"The following day I got a message from Lionel Duncalf of Lionel's Trucking and Oilfield saying he wanted to match those donations. He dropped off a cheque for $675, so that's a total of $1,350 going to the Drumheller Cancer Centre," Buchamer outlined.

The Drumheller Cancer Centre is something that really hits home with Buchamer as she's helped raise money for cancer victims in the past, plus she has a very personal connection.

"My husband is an eight year cancer survivor, so this is a battle that is very close to home and it does matter; it matters that you're able to stay home in the comfort of your community. The fact that we have a Chemo clinic right here is huge to people that are battling this disease," expressed Buchamer.

For those locals who didn't have the chance to get their bike to the bikini bike wash, Buchamer noted that they will be holding the fundraiser again next year.
