In the 11 years that the Cops for Kids has been around, RMCP officers from Golden and around British Columbia have helped countless B.C. children.
And on Monday May 7, three young ladies in Golden were the recipients of some very special gifts.
Golden RCMP Officer Michael Hull, who will be participating in the charity’s 10-day, 1,000-km bike ride this September, had the privilege of presenting the girls with their gifts.
Five-year-old Yarah Foyston, who was born with the life-long debilitating syndrome Trisomy 9 Mosaic, was given a colour printer and laminator, as was recommended by her speech and language pathologist.
Three-year-old Kaydee Jensen, who is living with a cancerous brain tumour, was the recipient of a brand new iPad.
And two-year-old Kristen Pleym, who suffers from Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, also received a brand new iPad. Cops for Kids has also assisted her family with $500 to help with the most recent trip to Boston.
