Cops for Kids is a police time trial race sponsored byMonticello Motor Club. One hundred percent of the $40,000 raised will be donated on behalf of the Police Benevolent Associations of the New York State Troopers, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office and Monticello Police Department to the local not-for-profit groups; NYS Troopers PBA Signal 30 Fund, The Sheriffs' Summer Camp, To Benefit Allyson Strong.



Five members of each law enforcement team competed in tiem trials with 50% of the money raised donated to the winner's charity, 30% to the 2nd place finisher and 20% to the 3rd.



Whelen's professional race driver Eric Curran, a Guardian Angel Motorsports Board Member, pulled out all the stops appearing with both his World Challenge Corvette, the Whelen police demo car, as well as a significant donation from Whelen Engineering, Inc.



"Doing laps with the kids in the Whelen demo cruiser was the highlight for me," said Curran. "There was one little girl that operated the lights and siren for the entire ride, she didn't want to get out!"







"I LOVED doing laps with the kids," remarked David Kuchrawy. "They enjoyed it so much it made me laugh."



Guardian Angel Motorsports (GAM), a non-profit for children's charities, attended the event along with Whelen Engineering. Their mission is to raise money for the children with chronic and life threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries.



"Children diagnosed with a serious illness, lose the day-to-day joys of childhood. We want to help these kids any way we can." Said Mike Kerouac, president of Guardian Angel Motorsports.
