It’s been a grueling 10-day bicycle ride, and this morning the Cops for Kids team arrives back in Kelowna.
The 30-plus riders, made up mostly of RCMP officers, left the Central Okanagan on Sept. 14.
During the 1,000 km ride, the Cops for Kids team raising money for children who are sick, disabled or dealing with some kind of trauma, stopped in 26 communities throughout southeastern B.C.
2018 marks the 17th year for the Cops for Kids ride.
The annual event has raised more than $4.5 million over those 17 years of avid participation.
As always, the public is invited to attend the big homecoming for the Cops for Kids.
That is scheduled to happen at 11:30 this morning at the Ramada Hotel on Harvey Avenue.
