I’ve participated in many Cops for Cancer presentations in Port Hardy during my 34 years teaching in SD85, but I’ve never witnessed a presentation quite like this one before! All the students K–7 at William Konkin Elementary in Burns Lake were seated in the school gymnasium then the music played, the side door opened, and over 30 riders drove into the gym and around the students on their bicycles!

It was totally engaging and the students were thrilled! Eventually they all stopped at the front in a long line while the emcee explained of the goals of Cops for Cancer to raise money to send children dealing with cancer (and their families) to Camp Good Times. Then several riders demonstrated how to hover on their bikes. After the presentation the riders rode into the crowd where they interacted with students and passed out Cops for Cancer tattoos. What an awesome morning!
