The 2017 Final Leg Torch Run was kicked off at the Alberta Legislature building on May 16 which ignited events across Alberta.  Law Enforcement members in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Strathcona County, Camrose, Lethbridge and Red Deer all took part in Torch Runs.  These runs culminate in Medicine Hat where the Torch will be carried into the Opening Ceremonies of the 2017 Special Olympics Alberta Summer Games.  Athletes from across the province will be cheering on our Law Enforcement community in appreciation for their ongoing support!
