Walker, officers, athletes kick off 31st Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run

09 Juin 2017

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, which is an annual fundraiser for Special Olympics Ontario. During the run, officers across the state carry the Flame of Hope about 1,500 miles until it reaches Bloomington-Normal for the Summer Games. Todd said she started the team because the area didn't have one for those out of the school system.

Since 1981 law enforcement has been running to raise millions of dollars, to pay for the Olympics, being held this weekend. Many law enforcement officers have formed relationships with our athletes: "volunteering as coaches, Unified (Sports) partners or just friends", she said. Buller, who "never runs", said over the years, he has become friends with numerous athletes. "Law enforcement is one of the major fundraisers for the Special Olympics". "I feel great - i feel fantastic when they do that to me. Why?"

Visitors can come out and take in the 2017 Special Olympics of Southern California Summer Games this weekend, June 10-11, at Cal State University Long Beach. Our athletes are so inspirational and so thankful to law enforcement for everything they do.

Some of the officers rode in the van part of the way, while others ran all the way to Montsweag Roadhouse, where the torch was passed to Sagadahoc County Sheriff's Office personnel.

Lisa Carlone said she always marvels at the athletes' enthusiasm and how they encourage the runners.

Some 30 people, including Special Olympians, police officers and students from St. Mary Catholic High School, took part in Thursday's Brockville run, following a route from the Metro store on King Street West to the Home Hardware on Stewart Boulevard. "They're pulling you on and they're cheering you on and they stop so you can catch up to them".
