This episode of 10-5 The Official Podcast of the OPP Association features OPPA Director Lynn Neale, and Police Safety Spokesperson and Judge of the 2023 Dancing With the Stars of 911 event, Colleen Eve.  

The episode  is a recap of the 2023 Dave Mounsey Memorial Fund Dancing With The Stars of 911 event held in London, Ontario Saturday October 28th.  

The Dave Mounsey Memorial Fund was created in memory of Provincial Constable Dave Mounsey of the Ontario Provincial Police who was killed in the line of duty in November, 2006.

In 2010 the DMMF held its first Dancing With the Stars event. This event was specific to members of the Ontario Provincial Police and spanned from 2010-2012.  

In 2013, to better represent the mission statement and vision of the Fund in honouring all fallen First Responders and Military persons, Dancing With the Stars of 911 was started.  

Since 2010, over 75 couples have danced at the event and twelve defibrillators have been donated thus far at the gala evening. The dedication and commitment of each dancer is a reminder of their belief in remembrance and their desire to honour those who have made the ultimate sacrifice..  

The year 2023 marked the return of the event after a three year COVID hiatus. This year a defibrillator was donated in honour of Sapper Brian Collier and his family.  

Couple one was Morgan Rolph and Austin Kohler both of the OPP. Couple two were from Middlesex-London Paramedic Services, Christopher Tran-Nguyen and Julie Colgen. Couple three was Lindsay Adamson and Ben Morgan from the OPP. Couple four was Darcy Campbell and Abbigail Boss from the Woodstock Police Service. Couple five was Jade Flay from Middlesex-London Paramedic Service and Layne Lavis from the Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary. Couple six was Nick Dorken of the Thames Centre Fire Department and Michelle Marko from Middlesex-London Paramedic Services.  

The couples performed for an audience of approximately 400 at the formal dinner gala.  

The OPPA are honoured to be a Lifetime Donor to the event and thank everyone for their  support in raising over $38,000.00 at this year’s event.
