THUNDER BAY – The games are less than a month away but organizations wanting to see every athlete have a rewarding and memorable experience are continuing to donate money to help make it all possible.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run donated $44,250 to the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games, which will be held in Thunder Bay at the end of the month.

All the money was raised by police services and organizations throughout Northern Ontario, including the Ontario Provincial Police, the RCMP, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Canadian National Railway Police, Canadian Pacific Railway Police, and local police services including the Thunder Bay Police.
