Honouring A Hero!

I had the honour of getting to know Cst. Derek Pineo in 2007 at RCMP Depot in 2007. Tragically, Derek lost his life on duty on July 20, 2012 when his police cruiser collided with a moose near Wilkie, SK. Derek was 38 years old. In 2016, I rode the 1st annual Saskatchewan Ride to Remember law enforcement cycling event from Saskatoon Police HQ to the Regina Parliament grounds approx 320km to honour fallen officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. At the end of the ride, we took part in the Saskatchewan Police & Peace Officer's Memorial situated at the Saskatchewan Parliament grounds. The focus of my ride in 2016 was to honour Derek. This year in 2017, upon speaking with Derek's wife Natasha, we would like to invite and bring Derek's son, Kayleb to ride alongside the Ride to Remember to honour his dad. Kayleb loves cycling and we would love for him to experience this event to ride for his dad. In conclusion of the ride the focus shifts to the Saskatchewan Police & Peace Officer's Memorial on Sunday, September 24, 2017 in Regina. In addition to Kayleb riding with us, I would also like to have Derek's wife, Natasha and two daughter's Novalea & Ocean also attend to remember their husband & dad. Derek's family resides in Nova Scotia. I am anticipating about $4000-$4500 would suffice to make this dream a reality. The Pineo's are forever grateful for this opportunity and it would be a dream to attend, however it is a costly endeavour that cannot be carried out alone. We are also looking at renting a bicycle for Kayleb so he can participate. I encourage you to make this a reality for the Pineo family and truly make this a "Ride to Remember".

Any excess funds collected will be placed in Cst. Pineo's Memorial Trust Fund
