Aaron Gross

Niagara Region Police Det. Aaron Gross is a great man & police officer who deserves to be nominated. He doesn't just perform his duties, he goes above anyone I have known in my life. His family and his community is everything to him. His work that he lovingly does for Special Olympics is remarkable. He was chosen to represent Ontario and the Niagara Regional Police to run the final leg for Torch Run Ontario Special Olympics. I am very proud to know him. If anyone deserves to be awarded, Det. Aaron Gross does.

Andrew Mintz

I work for 7-Eleven located in Downtown Brampton. We have a bunch of homeless people in the area. As our business is operated 24/7, nights are hard to deal with. One night, we had a well-known homeless individual in our store. He wanted to have a nap by lying in the middle of store. We have made calls to the police several times about this individual for assistance in getting him out of the store. During one of the calls, we had Peel Regional Police Cst. Andrew Mintz respond.

Ed Sanchuk

Recently, I started a “Birthday Card Bonanza” for my friend’s daughter Sarah - she turned 12 on December 5, 2020. This girl has gone through more in her 12 years then some of us will ever face in a lifetime. On October 29, 2020, her mom called to let me know that Sarah relapsed for the 5th time in her short life with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She had to be admitted yet again to Sick Kids, in Toronto, and start her next fight. She was first diagnosed at age 3, and I’ve stood by and tried to support her and family as I watched a huge chunk of her childhood be stolen.
