KELOWNA - The annual Cops for Kids Ride Homecoming is happening this weekend.

The Cops for Kids Ride cycling team went across southeastern B.C. and will arrive home on Sunday, Sept. 17, according to a Kelowna RCMP release issued today, Sept. 16.

The event is meant to raise money for local children in medical, physical, or traumatic crisis, according to the Cops for Kids website.

Riders left Kelowna on a journey that took 10 days to cover 1,000 km and 22 communities to raise money for kids in need.

The Cops for Kids President, Grant Fletcher, would like community members to attend the annual Cops for Kids Ride Homecoming and join dignitaries, RCMP leadership, families, supporters and the Little Ambassadors who will be at the event.

The Cops for Kids Ride will be escorted to the Ramada Hotel Kelowna at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday. There will be short ceremonies to welcome the team home from their journey, according to Kelowna RCMP Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.
