Torch run coming to Delta
A symbol of acceptance, achievement and admiration through sport will be making its way through Delta early next month.
It's the Law Enforcement Torch Run, an innovative initiative powered by dedicated law enforcement personnel around the world in support of Special Olympics athletes.
The Corporation of Delta is one of 30 dedicated communities across the province participating in the Law Enforcement Torch Run that helps raise awareness for Special Olympics athletes and programs in B.C. Law enforcement officials, Special Olympics athletes and members of the community will be running through Ladner on June 8.
The run will commence at Ladner Lions Park at 3 p.m. and will end at approximately 3:30 p.m. at the Delta Police Department (4455 Clarence Taylor Crescent) where participants can enjoy a wrap up barbecue.
This event is open to all members of the community who wish to register. More details on the Torch Run, including itinerary and registration information, can be found at www.specialolympics.bc.ca/letr.
