On Saturday, January 5, 2019, Executive Director and LETR PEI member, Forrest Spencer invited our Chair, Roger Steadman and Jeremy, SOPEI athlete to talk about the supportive relationship and participation impact of being an LETR member!
Here is a nice reflection blog from Cadet Worth:
Pursuing a career in law enforcement has opened my eyes to many things afar, however I was fortunate enough to be introduced to something amazing, and that has given me an even more vast perspective of the profession. Myself and my squad mates were introduced to one of the special Olympics PEI athletes, Jeremy Wall. It was mesmerizing listening to how much passion Jeremy had for the Special Olympics, the mere mention of any sport, and Jeremy was glowing. However, I was also introduced to the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR). Law enforcement being a dream of mine I could only appreciate more how important that law enforcement stands by all individuals with intellectual disabilities and helps them achieve their personal achievements through positive sport experiences. In closing I’d like to thank all the volunteers, coaches, athletes, and Law enforcement personnel for broadening my horizon even further, and I can’t wait to be apart of the LETR myself some day.
