Riders and support workers from RCMP and supporting enforcement agencies within the Southeast district will be at Deadwood Junction in Greenwood on this year’s Cops for Kids Ride on Saturday, September 6 at about 3 p.m.

The 2013 Ride will take the team across the Southeastern corner of British Columbia to raise awareness and essential funds for children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis.

Over the ten-day journey, Cops for Kids riders will cycle into 18 different communities across southeastern B.C., facing some challenging terrain and possible inclement weather conditions along the way.

The route includes ascent and descent of two mountain passes: the Anarchist and the Blueberry- Paulson, which involve significant elevation changes.

These encounters will remind each rider of the challenges that some children, the ambassadors, face on a daily basis and it will serve to keep them focused to complete their journey to help better the lives of these children.

In addition, many of these little ambassadors will meet the riders in their hometowns.

Cops for Kids are grateful for the generosity shown by all of our communities. “Our riders join us from across the region, and they’ve each raised a minimum of $2,000 through various fundraising efforts in their own community.

Each year Deadwood Junction extends their hospitality to the Cops for Kids.

To make a donation either come down and meet the Riders on September 6 or visit copsforkids.org
