Officers Honoured for 25 years of Law Enforcement Torch Run

LETRPremier Greg Selinger joined a team of Special Olympians to say thank you to law enforcement officers from across Manitoba for their continuing commitment to the Manitoba Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR).

The event, held June 10th at the Manitoba Legislature, was held to mark to the 25th anniversary of Manitoba’s Torch Run in support of athletes with intellectual disabilities.

Since its inception, the Manitoba LETR has consistently achieved our goal, raising in approximately 2.5 million dollars, through a host of activities like Torch Runs around the province, the Worlds’ Largest Truck Convoy and the exhilarating Polar Plunge in February. One hundred percent of all money raised through LETR fundraising campaigns go directly to Special Olympics Manitoba.

Special Olympics Manitoba is dedicated to enriching the lives of Manitobans with an intellectual disability through active participation in sport. With more than 2,000 athletes and 1,300 volunteers and coaches, Special Olympics Manitoba develops and delivers 132 athletic programs in 18 sports in all regions of the province.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics (LETR) is the movement’s largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. More than 85,000 law enforcement officers carried the Flame of Hope across 35 nations, raising awareness and funds for Special Olympics.
