Warm welcome for Cops for Kids in Chase

On Friday Sept. 18, Cody Chase, a local Pritchard young man and a recipient of the generosity of Cops for Kids

On Friday Sept. 18, Cody Chase, a local Pritchard young man and a recipient of the generosity of Cops for Kids, led 21 cyclists through Chase to Haldane Elementary School where they were greeted by the energetic, enthusiastic students who cheered their entrance.

Upon arrival, the Chase Rotary Club had organized lunch with a donation from Chase Subway. After pictures and sharing of souvenirs, everyone enjoyed the hot soup and sandwiches,including the students, who had hot dogs. Rotary Club and Haldane Elementary both made  generous donations. The monies donated will go towards helping fund medical assistance to children who have challenges.

The local Chase detachment led by Sgt. Gary Hebner were also in attendance, showing their community they care.

The riders then got back on their bikes and proceeded to Kamloops to continue their journey. If you want to make a donation, go to their website “Cops for Kids” and follow the prompts.
