The ride, which travels through a number of communities in the southeast portion of BC, raises funds for the Cops for Kids charitable foundation. The funds raised will go to help children in need due to medical, physical or traumatic crisis.

While in Cranbrook the team participated in the all male fashion show at the Tamarack Mall. Performing for a sold out crowd where the riders, along with others from the community, modeled clothes from various retailers. This event in past has raised between $8000 and $10,000.

The riders will return to Kelowna at noon on Sunday Sept 16. Please welcome the riders at the CIBC bank at Orchard Park Mall. Entertainment and refreshments will be available.

“Cops for Kids” are grateful for the generosity shown by all of our communities.

“Our riders join us from across the region, and these are some of the most hard-working people in law enforcement today,” says ride captain Julio Krenz
