Olympic curling gold medallist Brad Jacobs will sweep into Sudbury on May 21 as a guest of the Greater Sudbury Police Service's Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.  


Torch run participants will be jogging from Science North to Tom Davies Square. The event begins at 5 p.m., and runners are asked to set up at about 4:30 p. m.

The public is welcome to join the run. T-shirts will also be sold at the event and all money raised will go toward the Special Olympics.



Jacobs will be at Tom Davies square at the conclusion of the run (between 5:30 and 6 p.m.) for a meet and greet, and to sign autographs.

The mission of the torch run is to increase awareness and raise funds for the Special Olympics movement. Each year, the initiative grows bigger and better, said Greater Sudbury Police Service in a news release.

“The Special Olympics community is grateful to the officers from around the world who raise awareness and funds through the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.”
