The group of about 50 runners and walkers made the 2.6km run from Sardis secondary to PRTC.

The torch is called the ‘Flame of Hope’ and it was used to light the cauldron at the Special Olympics Canada 2014 Summer Games Opening Ceremony on July 8 in Vancouver.

Since 1990, the B.C. LETR has raised more than $3 million to date for Special Olympics B.C.
