On Tuesday, March 28th in Saskatoon and Regina, Law Enforcement members and SOS athletes came together with Boston Pizza to raise the much needed funds for Special Olympics Saskatchewan athletes! Our finest put the "serve" in service, combining the delicious food at Boston Pizza with smiles, stories, and laughs to help spread the awareness of Special Olympics.
Law enforcement officers and Special Olympics athletes and volunteers joined together to wait on tables and collect donations during Pasta Tuesday from 5:00pm-9:00pm. The athletes had the opportunity to share their stories across the province. A total of $2500.00 was raised for our athletes!
A huge thank you goes out to communities for showing your support and attending the fundraiser! Thank you to Boston Pizza for hosting the fantastic evening. Finally, thank you to all the LETR members (Saskatoon Police Service, Regina Police Service, and Saskatchewan Highway Patrol) and SOS athletes for making the event successful.
