On Tuesday June 16, 32 Division held its 27th Annual Slo-Pitch tournament. This one-day event brought together 80 Toronto Police Service members to participate in the event that included retired officers and young families stopping by to watch.  All the proceeds from the event were donated to Ronald McDonald House Toronto. 

Ronald McDonald House Toronto, situate at 240 McCaul street,  is a “home away from home” for seriously ill children and their families. They provide a place for families to heal in a medical-free space in their 81-family House in downtown Toronto just steps away from their ill children. Children heal better when surrounded by the comforts of home and family.

The 2015 tournament organised by Constable Tamara Shewchenko and Detective Dan Darnbrough. In total, $2,414.95 was raised and donated on July 22 at Ronald McDonald House.
