WPS  Law Enforcement Torch Run  Special Olympics Youth Games

Tuesday, May 21, 2019 - Woodstock Police Service is proud to be one of the many police services that supported the Inaugural Special Olympics Invitational Youth Games from May 14th-17th, hosted by Toronto Police Service. The Law Enforcement Torch Run representative from the Woodstock Police Service, Deb Klemp, joined officers from around the world including Australia and Alaska, last week to support the local Woodstock basketball team from College Avenue Secondary School (CASS) participating in the games.

Tuesday afternoon consisted of 304 police officers running through the streets of Toronto into the opening ceremonies at the Metro Convention Centre. This is the largest group of officers to date to participate in Special Olympics opening ceremonies. These officers then cheered on the many athletes during their events at these games.

Klemp was fortunate enough and honoured to present the CASS basketball team with their ribbons as well as the medals and ribbons to athletes from across Canada.

"I have had the pleasure of attending many of these Law Enforcement Torch Run Special Olympic events and each one reminds me of why this partnership is so important to Law Enforcement and athletes alike. Being able to support and cheer on CASS during their games was heartwarming, as our local team through much determination, left their hearts on the court. The city of Woodstock and CASS should be very proud of this team lead by coach Jaimen." – LETR Representative, Deb Klemp
