The Cops for Kids Ride

Cops for Kids is a charitable foundation that is committed to assisting children that have suffered a medical, physical or traumatic crisis in their young lives. Every year Grant Fletcher, our commercial banking regional manager participates in this grueling ten-day ride, which occurs each year over some very challenging terrain. The riders are driven by their commitment to the young children and their families which the Cops for Kids foundation serve in the southern interior region of British Columbia.
