SUPER FUN at Guardians Half!

On October 15th, the Law Enforcement Torch Run Endurance Series featured the Guardians Half, an event day with 5k and half marathon races, held in Orillia. The organizers did a fantastic job, the weather held out, and all runners had a great day. Special Olympics participants included Desiree from Orillia who was first female in the 5k (wow!), and Austin from Manitoulin and Stephen from Orillia who both did the half marathon. Brian and Sam from Barrie, Monique from GTA and Stephanie from SOO-Collingwood all took part in the 5k. And, local Orillia athletes enjoyed volunteering at the start/finish areas by presenting the torch, saying the Athletes' Oath, and presenting medals to finishers. Great job, everyone!
