Bail or Jail Wrap Up

Wow! 

Well, I will say that I am still not fully recovered from the amazing Bail or Jail 2018. It was fast, furious and fun! 

We are super excited to say that this year, by the generosity of our community, we hosted our best event in over 5 years! Thanks to our 19 arrestees, we were able to raised more than $22,000 towards Crime Stoppers programming. 

I would like to give a huge Thanks to Dianne as committee chair. Dianne spent countless hours working towards this event. Thanks to the committee as well. Many little details and the day of the event would not have gone as smoothly without your help. Thank you Lina, Ernie, Kris and Glen!

We are already hard at work planning next year to make it bigger and better than ever! 

Thanks so much again,

Tyler

Crime Stoppers Annual Event, Bail or Jail is just under 2 weeks away! 

Celebrating over 30 years, this event has evolved from a simple Telethon Style event, to live video trials, to the social media hosted style event that it is today.

Every Dollar Crime Stoppers raises goes towards the reduction of crime, public awareness of the program, and education of crime preventions in our local community.  We raise 100% of our funds through events like this, as we receive no government support.

The Bail or Jail event raises funds through donations by arresting your friends, family, neighbours, employers, or pretty much anyone you know. They are convicted of an offence and thrown in jail where they need to raise money to “Bail them Out”, but some people would rather pledge to “Keep’em in Jail”! We try to keep this event as entertaining as possible for our ‘Arrestees’ and for you. So we ask you to join us at Tecumseh Mall, May 10th.

Please check out http://bailjail.catchcrooks.com/  for full details! 

We Ran...

Nature surround the runners on all sides as the scenery encouraged them to explore along the running path. This race was half road, half packed trail through the woods.

On Sunday, April 22nd we are partnering on a new event for us. Southern Footprints is a series of races held at Point Pelee National Park. This is the 11thyear for the race, and has quickly grown to become one of the most popular races in the southwest Ontario area.
 
Crime Stoppers is very excited to be involved this year, not only as benefactors, but as supporters as well!
 
We are going to be hosting a booth in the vendor area, running one of the water stations on the course and assisting around the events as needed. You will see red shirts everywhere!

Visit www.southernfootprints.ca for all the details and to register. There are going to be four races taking place: 5km walk, 5km run, 10km run and 20km. If you are up for a challenge, I would encourage you to participate! Personally, I will be doing the 20km!

Have an amazing day and we hope to see you at the Point!
