Do you know a child who needs assistance...read below
The Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation was established by the members of Kelowna Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in 2001 as a means of raising money to benefit children in our community.
The mandate of the Foundation to provide financial support to children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis within the Southern Interior Region of British Columbia. The focus in 2008 will be in the increase the number of children who benefit locally, through raising awareness with the media and sponsor programs throughout communities in the ride area.
Cops for Kids organize a variety of fundraising events throughout the summer and fall. Our main fundraising event is the annual Cops for Kids bike ride where RCMP detachments throughout the Southern Interiour work together to benefit children's charities in our communities.
The purpose of Cops for Kids is to enable a vehicle to allow volunteers from Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation to raise funds for disbursement directly to communities with the Southern Interior Region of the British Columbia for their children and families in need; Cops for Kids also tries to reinforce positive contributions to the community of the RCMP members in the Southern Interior Region of British Columbia by helping to fulfill and better lives of children in crisis.
The RCMP have a proud history of serving our communities. For many, the commitment to make a difference doesn't stop when the uniform comes off at the end of the day. The members who participate in the gruelling challenge of the ride are commited- they devote their time and energy to the point of the utter exhaustion in order to help the children of the Southern Interior.
