Make your kilometres make a difference. Raise vital funds by running and walking with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC!
Thank you to everyone who laced up to support SOBC in June! Stay tuned for more announcements of in-person runs/walks.
This year’s Law Enforcement Torch Run for SOBC matters more than ever.
Special Olympics BC volunteers, athletes, and supporters around the province are currently working hard to reopen their in-person programs, with strong SOBC safety protocols in place. But we’re only about a third of the way back to our usual capacity to change lives.
The pandemic has had a long-lasting, far-reaching impact on athletes with intellectual disabilities, who were already far too familiar with the pain of isolation. More than ever, we need your support to rebuild all of our year-round, in-person sport programs that create empowering connections, open hearts and minds to inclusion, and break down barriers.
Take these steps and change lives
- Register for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for SOBC. No in-person event near you? No problem! Sign up for the virtual event and clock your kilometres from home.
- Encourage friends, family, and supporters to donate to your run/walk and help create life-changing opportunities through Special Olympics BC. Check out our fundraising tips.
