On September 6th, I will be a part of the 2019 Cops for Kids Ride team that departs Kelowna on a 1,000km journey across the region to raise funds and awareness for local children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis. This will be my fifth year participating in the ride and each year the ride reminds me how profoundly a life can change in an instant. I am proud to serve as a BC Sheriff and this mountainous route through the Okanagan-Similkameen and Kootenays will serve as a reminder of the children we ride for, and their daily struggles for which we hope to minimize through our efforts. All funds raised from this event will provide financial assistance local families in their time of crisis, and we appreciate your generosity to help reach our fundraising goal. Thank you for your support.
