Hosting Special Olympics Games

Law Enforcement Agencies in Ontario have proudly hosted 21 Special Olympics Ontario Provincial Games dating back to 1996.  This accomplishment is truly remarkable and we are proudly the only Torch Run program in the WORLD to have accomplished such a feat.  The bond between Law Enforcement and Special Olympics is unparalleled as proven by this tremendous annual support of time, resources and effort from our law enforcement brothers and sisters for the cause.  In total, over $20 MILLION has been raised for the Games locally.
