On Monday May 14, 2018, the Barrie Police Service will be hosting the 5th Annual Home Safe 5KM Run/Walk to benefit the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County and Autism Ontario - Simcoe County. The Home Safe 5KM Run/Walk is an event for families and participants of all ages. The event has enticed additional participants every year, and with the assistance of our esteemed sponsors we have raised over $6,000.00 for our charities of choice.

The event continues to bring further awareness to our Vulnerable Person Registry (VPR) which now boasts over 60 registrants. The Vulnerable Person Registry is a program in Barrie that allows caregivers of vulnerable persons to submit vital information to a database that is used by police and other emergency services during a crisis situation. Examples of Vulnerable Persons may include persons with; Alzheimer's Disease, Autism Spectrum Disorder, an Acquired Brain Injury or a Mental Health condition. For more information on this program click here.

The Barrie Police Service is honored to have Tony Grace from CTV Barrie joining the event as the Master of Ceremonies. We are also pleased to have the staff from Barrie Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation on-site to kick off this event with a dynamic warm-up, as well as Kool FM and Rock 95.

The event will take place at Heritage Park, on Lakeshore, and commence at 6:15 p.m. All participants will follow a marked 5km route around Kempenfelt Bay, beginning and ending at Heritage Park. All ages and fitness levels are encouraged to take part. Whether participants walk, run or ride their bikes when they cross that finish line a medal of participation will be awarded to everyone!
