Law enforcement officers across BC

Red lace day

Mission RCMP detachment personnel added a splash of colour to their footwear to support Special Olympics in BC

Mission RCMP members and staff sported red shoelaces Thursday (Oct. 25) to show their support for Special Olympics.

Oct. 25 was Be A Fan Day, a way for Special Olympics BC to thank the law enforcement community for its support through events such as the torch run.

“Special Olympics has partnered with police for 25 years,” said Rogine Battel, RCMP’s support services supervisor, who has been involved with the program for the past 14 years. “As many people working today are wearing red laces to show their support.”

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is held every year during the last week of June.

Special Olympics provides individuals with intellectual disabilities opportunities to enrich their lives and celebrate personal achievement through positive sport experiences. There are about 4,000 Special Olympic athletes in B.C. around the province.
