Michelle MacKin­non, left, a Canada Bor­der Ser­vices Agency of­fi­cer, and Spe­cial Olympian Abbey Sta­ple­ton of Syd­ney River run the first leg of the Law En­force­ment Torch Run in Syd­ney on Thurs­day. More than 75 peo­ple — in­clud­ing mem­bers of the po­lice, RCMP, coast guard, sher­iff ser­vices, the cor­rec­tional de­part­ment, by­law en­force­ment, fish­eries and nat­u­ral re­sources, along with Spe­cial Olympics Cape Bre­ton ath­letes and the pub­lic — took part in the event, which raises money for Spe­cial Olympics. Last year’s run took in about $8,000 and a sim­i­lar amount is ex­pected to be raised this year.
