Event Description

From Friday, August 16th to Sunday, August 18th, the Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Alberta (LETR), Walmart Canada, and Parkland Mall will team-up to hold a major fundraising event in support of Special Olympics Alberta. Members from Red Deer's law enforcement agencies will stay atop the Supercentre Walmart Red Deer North, 6375 50 Ave. until Sunday at 4 p.m. after being hoisted up at 10:00 a.m. Friday morning. Members of the public are encouraged to support Free our Finest through partaking in fun activities like getting your picture taken with an Old West style prison trailer. LETR shirts, and other merchandise will also be on hand for purchase with all proceeds going to Special Olympics programs. Stop by, meet Special Olympics athletes, and hear their stories. Interested in sponsoring this great event? Contact Lorrie Sitler (lsitler@specialolympics.ab.ca). Internationally the Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest grassroots fundraiser and awareness vehicle for Special Olympics. Last year in Alberta, over $600,000 was raised across the province, benefiting local programs, and providing transportation to competitions. Proceeds from the Free Our Finest event will go towards local Red Deer Special Olympics programs.
