Trail RCMP and its emergency partners are teaming up with the Special Olympics for its annual fun-raising initiative, the Law Enforcement Torch Run on Tuesday in Trail.
The Run is the single largest fund-raising event in the Special Olympic calendar and will be hitting the pavement throughout the province next week, but will have a special start in Trail on Tuesday.
The run starts at the 3 p.m. at J. L. Crowe Secondary parking lot, with the three-kilometre route heading to the Sunningdale Y, then returning to Gyro Park.
All participants are then invited to a barbecue following the run/walk courtesy of Trail WalMart and Special Olympics B.C., as well as a bocce game with Special Olympic athletes.
Members of the public are encouraged to participate. Registration is $25 and includes a dri-fit T-shirt, with all proceeds going to Special Olympics BC.
