The Can-Am Police-Fire Games registration numbers continue to grow, and one signature event is nearly at capacity.
Following four years of successful lead-up fundraising tournaments, the actual Can-Am Games Golf competitions will take place July 26 through 29.
Play includes two and four-person scrambles, as well as individual competitions.
There is still room for players, so anyone in the emergency services field interested in competing is asked to register now.
Team Goran Re/Max Care Realty has been the signature sponsor for each of the four lead-up fundraisers.
“We’ve been so happy to help raise awareness and funds for what will be a tremendous event for our community,” said Goran Todorovich. “Our first responders provide an incredible service, and we’re proud to support them.”
Along with a call for first responders to golf, games organizers are also announcing residents can compete in several events.
“We have space for 150 participants in the 5K (July 27 at 7 p.m.), 10K (July 28 at 7 p.m.) and 21K half marathon road race (July 30 at 7 a.m.), and space for 75 participants in the Cross Country 5K (July 27 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.) and 10K (July 28 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.),” said Games General Manager Jan Wilson. “We think this opportunity to run with and in support of our first responders will be a special memory for a lot of people. And there will be other event opportunities announced soon!” Runners can register at raceroster.com.
Also in attendance at the press conference was Windsor Fire Chief Stephen Laforet, representatives from Windsor Police, the South West Detention Centre, Ministry of the Solicitor General, Ambassador Bridge – Operations Branch, Canada Border Service Agency and Essex Windsor Emergency Medical Services.
The Can-Am Police-Fire Games is a multi-sport event hosted every two years in either Canada or the United States. The event is held over a 6-day period, and the games range from more traditional sports, such as softball, swimming and track and field, to more participant-specific sports, such as SWAT competitions and the Toughest Firefighter Alive competition.
