Like many other organizations, Cops for Kids is facing the reality that large group fundraising events aren’t allowed under social distancing restrictions; but this group of dedicated cops aren’t willing to throw in the towel because the need for financial assistance still exists. The charitable organization will not have their usual 30 member team pedalling across the region this September, instead opting to designate a few local riders to complete each leg of the 10 days on behalf of the team. The remainder of the team will continue to pedal 100km each day in their home community as a promise to the children who need them most. For parents with a child facing illness, disability, or traumatic crisis they don’t have the option to cancel or give up, and the dedicated group of cops are much the same. These families still need assistance, and so the group is committed to continue on.
