On June 2nd Calgary held their Community Torch run. Over 30 individuals turned out to bring the Flame of Hope into the Calgary Special Olympics wind up at Thorncliffe Greenview Community hall. We were extremely fortunate to have representation from Calgary Police Service, Alberta Corrections and Columbia College – School of Justice.
On June 3rd Olds kicked off our Free Our Finest season. Thank you to the many Law Enforcement Officers, Alberta Sheriffs, RCMP, and Alberta Corrections for helping raise over $5,000 for Special Olympics programs!
Thank you also to the many Special Olympic Athletes and Volunteers that worked tireless in the wind to raise awareness and funds!
We would succeed without the support of our many sponsors: Walmart Canada and Maple Leaf Foods.
