Letter to the Editor: Thanks from Cops for Kids team

This year, the Cops for Kids team raised a record $263,000.

On behalf of our entire 2014 Cops for Kids Ride team, I’d like to extend our sincere thanks to the community of Grand Forks for welcoming the team into your community.

Our meals were generously hosted at the Omega Restaurant, and the team slept at the Ramada Inn thanks to generous sponsors and donors from these businesses.

This year, our team raised a record $263,000 and it’s because of our local supporters that we’re able to continue assisting children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis within southeastern British Columbia.

As our need continues to grow, we’re working even harder each day to raise essential funds year-round to wipe out our wait list for funding. Donations can be made year-round by visiting our website at HYPERLINK “http://www.copsforkids.org/”www.copsforkids.org.

We look forward to seeing all of our friends and supporters in 2015, when we arrive into Grand Forks on Saturday, Sept. 12!

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards,

Gail Harrison, President and rider,

Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation
