Merritt RCMP officers participating in the Cops For Kids Ride.
Both Cpl Derrick Francis and Cst Jon Puterbough are embarking on 10-day, 1,000km ride through 22 communities in the Southeast District starting today.
For Puterbough, it's the second year in a row he'll be participating.
"I still think it's a great cause. I remember every moment of last year's ride, it was such a great 10-days. So, I'm looking forward to another unforgettable experience this year. We are raising money for a great cause and helping lots of kids."
The annual Cops for Kids Ride raises money for the Cops For Kids Foundation, which helps children in medical, physical, or traumatic crisis in the region.
Last year, over $330,000 was raised.
