Local youth, supported by DRPS and ProAction Cops and Kids recently braved the temperatures for an amazing day with some incredible people. Run For Me, Run For Us completed its first race, a six kilometre snowshoe race in north Brighton.

Everyone had an amazing time and did extremely well working as a team and motivating each other. It was challenging, but everyone pushed through the pain and finished with smiles on their faces. Thank you to ProAction Cops and Kids for making this event happen.

DRPS officers have been running the Run for Me, Run for Us program with the support of ProAction Cops and Kids. The program focuses on healthy living and 12 youth from the community participate in physical training once a week. The goal is to involve youth in regular activity and encourage participation in adventure races and marathons throughout the GTA. In addition to this, the youth are educated on various health related topics.

ProAction Cops & Kids, believe that establishing a positive relationship between cops and kids at risk will strengthen our community today and for the future. By funding programs that bring local cops and kids together, ProAction helps create an environment of mutual understanding and respect.
