We are a proud supporter of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (Lethbridge) supporting Special Olympics.
“The Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics Alberta have been ingrained in cooperation with each other for the last 20 plus years. Our enjoyment that we get out of doing these events is seeing the look on the athlete’s faces. The inclusion that they get through sport, the excitement that they get through participating in these events, that’s what we’re here for,” Matt Burton, Southwest Vice-Chair of the LETR
To date, they’ve raised just over $500,000 from this ride alone, and on June 8, 2019 out of Lethbridge they had 12 members set off that cycled to Edmonton, as well as eight support staff.
“Community is a connection, especially when it comes to the Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run and Special Olympics. The connection that we get between these two entities is inspiring when it comes to how it will impact the athlete’s lives.”
