Members of the Vancouver Police Department, in conjunction with other members of the Lower Mainland law enforcement community, are proud to be recognized by Special Olympics BC (SOBC) on Be a Fan Day as they mark the 25th anniversary of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) movement in Canada and recognize the generous support that so many B.C. law enforcement members show for Special Olympics.

The LETR is an inspirational movement that brings together law enforcement personnel in raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics. In B.C., the LETR has raised approximately $3.4 million for SOBC. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the LETR in Canada, members of the Lower Mainland law enforcement community will participate in a media event including remarks of recognition and interactive sports demonstrations with SOBC athletes.

On Be a fan Day, Vancouver Police Officers will be wearing red Special Olympics laces in their boots to show their support of Special Olympics BC and its athletes.

Please join members of the Vancouver Police Department at Special Olympics BC Be a Fan Day celebrations and see law enforcement personnel and Special Olympics athletes engage in interactive sports demonstrations.

DATE: Thursday, October 25, 2012, 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.
