Special Olympics BC hosted their inaugural Be a fan Day celebrations in Vancouver on Thursday (Oct. 25) to recognize B.C.’s law enforcement community for their continuous support through the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR).

Delta Police Department representatives wore the Special Olympics red shoelaces and participated in sports demonstrations with Special Olympics athletes.

The LETR brings together law enforcement personnel to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics through events such as the annual Torch Run and numerous other initiatives throughout the year. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the LETR movement in Canada.

The BC LETR has raised approximately $3.4 million for Special Olympics BC since 1990, helping SOBC expand to provide opportunities for more than 4,000 SOBC athletes in 55 communities.
