  Durham Cops Raise Funds for Special Olympians

Apr 23, 2010 14:39 ET

Members of the DRPS worked double duty and served up a seafood feast to help raise money for a great cause at this year’s Cops and Lobsters event in support of the Special Olympics.

The event was held on April 22 at the Red Lobster in Oshawa and members of the Durham Regional Police Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics team helped to serve lunch and dinner to hungry guests. All customers were given the option to make a donation to the Special Olympics after their meal.

Lunchtime donations totalled $734 and dinner donations raised $850.25 for a grand total of $1584.25 to assist the Special Olympics.

“The Torch Run team extends its sincerest appreciation to members of the community who made a contribution to the Special Olympics,” says Michelle Beaudry, a member of the Durham Regional Police Service who volunteered her time to help organize the fundraiser.

DRP will be participating in the North Durham Torch Run on June 8 as well as the Torch Run from Pickering to Clarington along Highway #2 on June 10. Dozens of civilian and sworn members of DRPS will carry the “Flame of Hope” through our communities in support of the Special Olympics.

Keep visiting our website for more details on the Torch Run closer to the dates.

Thank you to all DRPS members and customers who participated in making Cops and Lobsters another great success!
