The first-ever Virtual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC was a huge success! From June 1 to 7, participants from all over the province ran and walked in their communities to raise funds and awareness. While they couldn’t come together in person this year, SOBC supporters still found ways to encourage each other and spread BC LETR pride, including by sharing photos and videos on social media.
To recognize the 30th anniversary of the BC LETR, the event’s fundraising goal was $30,000, and runners/walkers strived to cover a combined distance of 3,000 kilometres. Special Olympics supporters smashed these targets, raising more than $60,000 and racking up more than 5,700 kilometres.
We are very grateful to all the SOBC athletes, law enforcement members, and other supporters who made such a big difference for Special Olympics BC through the first-ever Virtual Torch Run!
