As part of Special Olympics Ireland’s 40th Anniversary, the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR), are recruiting participants for their 999 Challenge in September 2018.

 The LETR are a global charity that have been supporting local Special Olympics programmes for over 35 years. Locally both the PSNI and Garda Síochána work tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics and serve as Guardians of the Special Olympics Flame of Hope.

 The 999 challenge takes place from 14th – 22nd September 2018 and will encourage people to run 9 miles, over 9 days in the 9 counties of Ulster. For those who feel a little less energetic, there is of course the opportunity to run or walk part of the challenge in 1, 2 or even 9 of the events counties.

 So whether you’re a long distance runner with more miles on your treadmill than your car or just someone who feels you’ve done enough running for the bus, why not take the 999 Challenge.

 This is an event for all abilities and LETR are keen that this is a fun event.  Participants, especially those of school age, or those who think they are Peter Pan and still haven’t grown up are encouraged to run in Fancy Dress of their favourite Super Hero or Emergency Service person (Police, Fire, Ambulance, Coast Guard) for the event.

All the events are listed to the left, if you are interested in taking part or hearing more about this or any other LETR/Special Olympics events prior to this, please contact Michael Allen or David Smith  – LETR NI 999 Co-ordinators or contact Special Olympics Ulster on 02890 239023.
