Airdrie, AB – From Friday, July 25th to Sunday, July 27th, 2014, the Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) and Walmart Canada will team-up to hold a major fundraising event in support of Special Olympics Alberta.

This year’s participants are from the RCMP, Corrections Alberta and the Alberta Sheriffs. Members of each agency will stay atop the Walmart location at Big Hill Springs Rd., until Sunday at 4 p.m.

The group will be hoisted to the top of the building at 10:00 a.m., Friday morning.

Members of the public are encouraged to help to Free the Fuzz and support the Special Olympics by stopping by the location to make a donation, or by purchasing a hotdog or pop at the weekend event.

Law enforcement members will also offer the public a chance to see inside their police vehicles and chat with local officers about their jobs.

Stop by and meet Special Olympics athletes, hear their stories.

Purchase a LETR T-shirt, water bottle or other merchandise, with all proceeds going to Special Olympics.

The Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run is a grassroots organization made up of law enforcement officers dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the Special Olympics. Special Olympics Alberta provides individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in sport.
