This is my first year as a Cops for Kids rider from the South Okanagan, and I’m excited for the journey ahead. I look forward to the challenge, as well as the team work and camaraderie that’s needed to make this ride a success. All funds raised from our journey will continue to support children facing illness, disability or traumatic crisis within South East District. Thank you for your support.

Although I’ve wanted to join the Cops for Kids Ride for years, this is the first time I’m able to join the team. While cycling over 1,000km throughout South East District, we’ll have the opportunity to raise funds and awareness for the children we meet along the way. Your donations are greatly appreciated in helping me reach my goal.

It’s my Passion! 2017 marks my 12th ride with Cops for Kids, an amazing way to raise awareness and funds to support children in crisis! This foundation impacts where it counts the most, to the front line to assist children with medical, physical or traumatic experiences and support them with medical travel assistance, mobility tools, and therapies to help them lead healthy lives. Let’s put the smile back on the faces of children, where it belongs! A Nana to 8 healthy g-babies I am blessed! My wish is to share this blessing with less fortunate children. Please donate!

This is my first year riding with the Cops for Kids ride. I believe this is a worthwhile charity to support, and provides incentive for me to increase my fitness level. Our team will cover 1,000km over the 10 days while we meet the Little Ambassadors who benefit from our fundraising efforts. All funds raise stay within our communities, to benefit the children who need it most. Thank you!

This will be my 7th Cops for Kids Ride. I originally joined the ride thinking it would be a one time venture, but the impact of seeing the children & their families who we have the opportunity to help has been something that hasn’t left me. It’s an honour to work with the ride team members in this common goal to represent the giving & kindness of all those people who support me & donate to Cops for Kids in support of the children in our communities.

I’m riding for my 5th year in 2017, and it’s the children that we assist, their families, and our ride team that brings me back each year.

The 2017 Cops for Kids Ride will be my first time riding with this special group of individuals.

I have participated in many activities in support of youth development and I believe every kid deserve a chance to a healthy life. Cops for Kids is a great way to give them that chance. I will do the riding and you can help by supporting me in reaching my fund raising goal. I know that most parents out there who have had to watch a child go through any sort of medical procedure or seen their children sick, have without a doubt wished they could trade places with their child, felt somewhat powerless, and wishing they could do something to ease their challenges. Cops for kids ride is the one way we can all do something that will help young people face wathever health challenge life throws at them, and provide their families with the comfort of knowing they have the support of a great organization such as Cops for kids charitable foundation. Join me through your donations or come meet our team at any of the organized fund raising events in your communities.

Life with 3 kids under the age of 5 keeps me busy, but it gives me an appreciation for the families who need help within our community. I’m participating in a portion of the Cops for Kids Ride again this year to help make a difference in the lives of local children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis. Your donations allow us to continue funding these requests from local families in their time of crisis. Thank you for your generosity.

After serving as an Auxiliary Member of the RCMP, Police Chaplain, and as a member of the Clergy I have had a front row seat to children in crisis. Anything that can be done to help little ones and their parents in their time of need must be done. I have often been amazed that the smallest assistance can make such a dramatic difference. This ride is my small part to not only raise money but awareness for this worthwhile cause. Improving one child’s circumstance is all the motivation I need and if I can help broader community engage, so much the better.
