The South Simcoe Police Service is once again proud to support local Special Olympics athletes by holding a Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR).

This year’s torch run will be on Monday, Sept. 18, 2023, starting at 10 a.m. in the Town of Innisfil. Runners will be joined by our very own local Special Olympics star athlete, Monique Shah of Bradford, a multiple gold-medal winner who was named Special Olympics Canada’s 2020 Athlete of the Year. The run will stop by three schools — St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, Nantyr Shores Secondary School, and Alcona Glen Elementary School.

The South Simcoe Police Service sold torch run T-shirts to raise funds. Special Olympics is the charity of choice for law enforcement agencies worldwide. All funds directly benefit Special Olympics Ontario. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest public awareness and grassroots fundraising organization for Special Olympics globally. The LETR is supported by the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, and has been an active partner of Special Olympics Canada since 1987.
