CAHIERS SPÉCIAUX

The sirens were blaring as police took over the downtown core last Wednesday, June 20, for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run in support of the Special Olympics. Athletes, along with family members and volunteers were flanked by West Nipissing Police and law enforcement partners from throughout the Northeast region in the annual walk. The WNPS collected “loose change” in buckets as they marched down John, Main, Front and finally King Streets. People streamed out of homes and businesses to see what the noise was about and watch the procession, and all pitched in for the great cause.

“Again, our community showed its generosity with $725 being collected in a span of about fifteen minutes. I wish to thank the community for their continued support of this great program. A special shout out to the officers who participated and to Constable Denis Marleau who coordinated this event on behalf of the WNPS,” lauded WN Police Chief Chuck Seguin.

“The Torch Run is the largest awareness fundraising organization for Special Olympics globally,” added local Special Olympics coach Jackie Truchon. “WNPS have been an active partner of Special Olympics Canada for many years and their fundraising efforts continue to enable our athletes to travel and compete! Thank you so much to the WNPS and the WN residents who donated. The amount raised in only 15 minutes is amazing!”
