CSN Collision Centre’s recently partnered with Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation to present an endurance spin-cycle event in Stuart Park, Kelowna.
The event named “Clip in for Families” is a fundraising initiative that supports the Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation and its mission to help children in crisis across Southeastern British Columbia.
Members of the Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation clipped into stationary bikes to complete an 8-hour spin-cycle ride, while representatives of the Foundation mingled with onlookers to talk about the event and the important work that the Foundation does.
Kids were entertained as well, with a free bike safety rodeo, presented by the RCMP and CSN were on-hand, giving away tote bags filled with novelties including CSN branded beach balls, perfect for Okanagan beach days.
Despite the heat, the riders rode on, with words of encouragement from onlookers, the day was a huge success. The biggest victory of the day, however, was the $7500 raised which goes directly to the foundation.
The Cops for Kids Foundation assists children within our communities who are facing illness, disability, or traumatic crises. “Our CSN Collision Centres’ in Kelowna and Vernon are dedicated to supporting the health and wellness of children in their time of need. Partnering with Cops for Kids to present this fun day in downtown Kelowna gives us an opportunity to support the families in our communities,” says Mark Reineking, President & CEO of Lift Auto Group.
