On Wednesday May 16th, the Akwesasne Mohawk Police hosted their Annual Torch Run for the Special Olympics as part of their AMPS Police Week. The event began at approximately 10 am, with the Akwesasne Mohawk Police gathering the students from Kana:takon School along with participants from the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's Community and Family Support. The run which began and ended at the Kana:takon School with everyone gathering outside the Kana:takon School and began the torch run around the village of Kana:takon. The torch run began heading east down Second Street, then North down St. Regis Street and then West down Third Street all the way up to Hilltop Drive where everyone went South all the way to First Street.

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's Community and Family Support along with Community members came out to support the Torch Run for Special Olympics.

The students did such a great job during the Torch Run, the AMPS had a hard time keeping up with the young ones. Everyone took a short break at the corner of Hilltop and First Street, allowing everyone to catch up, before everyone proceeded down the hill. The Torch Run did not take too long and everyone was able to enjoy the walk around the village with the weather being so beautiful out. And the roads were safe, thanks to the Akwesasne Mohawk Police.
