The OPP’s annual Torch Run has pulled in over $950 dollars for Special Olympians.

That’s according to OPP Officer Wade Torok who says just over $670 will be staying locally for Special Olympics Kapuskasing and $280 collected from t-shirt sales will go to Special Olympics Ontario and communities throughout the province.

Torok says he wanted to thank the Kapuskasing OPP as well as the Law Enforcement Torch Run team consisting of five members from the Sault St Marie Police Service, OPP and corrections.

He also wanted to send a special thank you to OPP Constable Lauren Duhaime for helping to organize the event.

Torok says officers will continue performing 24 more torch runs over the next week within the North East Region alone.
