Get Ready to Run with Law Enforcement

The first half marathon for the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run is planned for this fall in Orillia and organizers say now is the time to start training.

Hamilton Parole and Probation area manager Kimberley Ridgers was recently at OPP Headquarters in Orillia to promote the new signature event for Special Olympics Ontario along with her colleague Sarah Dereski.

Ridgers has been the provincial coordinator for Corrections involvement with the Torch Run for the last three years and has participated in Torch Runs for about ten years. 

She loves supporting the athletes and invites everyone to participate in the new marathon on October 16.

"We're trying to get anyone who wants to run," explains Ridgers.  "We've got a half marathon distance for our more serious runners and we've got a 3 km route for friends, families and Special Olympics athletes to get involved in. It's not just for the law enforcement community.  It's for any runners to come out and join us in a community run."
