2017 Red Deer Torch Run/Walk

On June 25th, 2017, Red Deer hosted their Final Leg Torch Run to celebrate the many Athletes that will be attending the Summer Games in Medicine Hat on the weekend of July 7th. This event was also a fundraiser which saw over 25 Law Enforcement members and athletes come out and raise over $2,700 for Special Olympics Alberta, Special Olympics Alberta – Red Deer and Special Olympics Alberta – Lacombe.



Law Enforcement Torch Run is Special Olympics' largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle internationally. In Alberta, 18 agencies in 117 communities contribute to LETR efforts annually, not only with events, but as Guardians of the Flame ensuring the delivery of the Special Flame of Hope to the opening ceremony of Provincial Games and sending off our local athletes to National and World Games.
