Special Olympics celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Law Enforcement Torch in grand style on October 25, 2012 with special events across the country.
In Durham Region, Special Olympians joined with the DRPS and other organizations at Monsignor John Pereyma Catholic Secondary School in Oshawa to mark the anniversary.
Supported by the provincial and national police chief associations, the Torch Run shows Special Olympic athletes how much the policing community respects and supports them.
Special Olympics Ontario has numerous special events planned to say thank you to the law enforcement community for 25 years of support and friendship. One way of celebrating is by wearing red shoelaces and they have been distributed to police services across Canada for police officers to wear on this special day.
