On March 11th and 12th, Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Alberta served up coffee and smiles in 14 Cora Breakfast and Lunch restaurants throughout Alberta raising over $47,000 for Special Olympics Alberta. More than half the funds raised were the result of generous donations from Cora patrons.
Cora Breakfast and Lunch restaurants were taken over by officers along with local Special Olympics athletes who happily served up hungry customers to raise funds and awareness. Over 120 law enforcement members partnered with 65 athletes province-wide to clear tables, greet customers and share inspiriting stories about Special Olympics.
Cora Breakfast and Lunch has been a proud partner of the Cops and Crêpes fundraising event since 2009 where it started in one restaurant location in Okotoks and grew to be a province-wide fundraising event.
Local representatives from Edmonton Police Service, Calgary Police Service, Alberta Corrections, Alberta Sheriffs, Fish & Wildlife, RCMP and Municipal Bylaw Enforcement generously volunteered their time to be part of this event.
