Forming Unbreakable Bonds:
OPP Commissioner Thomas Carrique & Stephen Graham
Thomas Carrique, Commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has formed an unbreakable bond with athlete Stephen Graham over the years. “Stephen’s enthusiasm, determination and his commitment to achieving his personal best is an inspiration that motivates those who have the privilege to get to know him to do better and be better,” states Commissioner Carrique.

Stephen Graham, a decorated Special Olympics athlete from Orillia who has won not only several medals but has earned himself the Special Olympics Ontario Male Athlete of the Year and has had the honour of carrying the Olympic Torch through Gravenhurst, Ontario at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.

Stephen’s mother Elaine expresses, “It’s not the 30 seconds on the ice that gets you a medal. It’s what it takes to get you there.” The hours of practice but the support of dedicated coaches and supporters such as the members of the Law Enforcement Torch Run – dreams become reality.

This year the OPP Guardians Half Marathon and 5K went virtual for the first time this year. The outpour of support from OPP, LETR and general public across the province was amazing!

Athletes like Stephen Graham participate in events such as these to stay active and meet the supporters in their communities. Although this year looked different, Stephen was grateful for the continued support.

“It’s been a hard year for everyone and the support is appreciated more than you know.”
