Town of Perth and Town of Carleton Place – Officers from the Lanark County Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will once again be running to support the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
There will be two fund raising “runs” in the county on Thursday, June 6, 2019. The first will be in the Town of Perth starting at the Lanark County OPP Detachment at 9:00 a.m. and travelling down Wilson and Gore Streets ending at Town Hall.
The second is in the Town of Carleton Place starting at the Carleton Place OPP Detachment at 11:00 a.m. and travelling down Lansdowne Avenue and Bridge Street to the Town Hall and returning to the detachment.
Participants of this run will be asking members of the public if they would like to place a donation in the collection buckets. All proceeds will go towards the Special Olympics programs for children and adults of all ages with intellectual disabilities.
Come out and show your support for our local Special Olympians who will be leading the way in this the Special Olympics 50th year!
