Police Services:

 Community based, province-wide event that sees the "Flame of Hope" carried across Ontario  by members of Law  Enforcement agencies from across the province. All funds raised through Ontario  Law Enforcement Torch Run events are directed into program support that directly affects all community  Special Olympic Ontario (SOO) programs.  Funds are then put into community programs and help pay for various expenses including: games travel, accommodations, meals, staff support to the field, grants to new community programs, volunteer and athlete training, administration and information/promotional materials and development initiatives like the 'School Program' which opens up opportunities to new athletes.  It's important to have one provincial fundraiser that helps SOO create an "equitable" playing field.  At SOO, small programs, large programs, big cities and small communities are  treated with the same level of importance.  The development of Special Olympics Ontario is directly related to the success of the Torch Run.
