The RCMP and Special Olympics are teaming up, and are inviting you to help them support local athletes.

On October 15, Golden RCMP and Special Olympics BC – Golden are excited to host the Law Enforcement Torch Run. This fundraiser will donate all proceeds to Special Olympics BC.

Golden is fortunate to have several athletes who participate and benefit from SOBC – Golden programs. These athletes train and compete in various sports including golf, aquatics, alpine skiing, and cross country skiing.

You can join in on the fun and support a great organization by coming out for a five-kilometre run/walk followed by a barbecue. The festivities will be held in Spirit Square in downtown Golden. Registration is $20 and includes a T-shirt and barbeque (by donation). Pledge sheets are available online or from the organizers, so you can fundraise to be eligible for great prizes. There will be prizes awarded to the top three fundraisers.

You can register online at sobc.kintera.org/torchrun2016. Then on the day, registration will be at 9 a.m. in Spirit Square. The run, or walk if you prefer, begins at 10 a.m., and will be followed by the barbecue from noon until 2 p.m.

For more information, or to obtain a pledge sheet or to make a donation to the event, please contact Marie-Helene Labonte with SOBC – Golden at mh.labonte@gmail.com or Cst. Colleen Lowing with the Golden-Field RCMP at colleen.lowing@rcmp-grc.gc.ca or 250-344-4009.
