The Brampton Excelsiors of the Ontario Jr. B Lacrosse League is holding a fundraiser for the Special Olympics in conjuction with Saturday’s tournament at Memorial Arena.

The event is being held in memory of detective-constable Jeffrey Northrup, a Toronto police officer who was killed in the line of duty last month.

Northrup and his family have been long-time residents of Brampton and he was very involved in both local lacrosse and the Special Olympics.

The Excelsiors are asking anyone who attends the tournament to make a donation to Brampton Special Olympics in Northrup’s honour.

Teams from London, Hamilton and West Durham will be in town for the event.
