PCSO To Take Leg in Torch Run for Special Olympics Montana on Wednesday
April 26, 2023
On Wednesday, May 3, Phillips County Sheriff's Office will take part in the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics Montana.
PCSO, who is responsible for the 3C portion of the route, is taking the torch from Malta, all the way to Havre that day.
The event is led by PCSO Deputy Faith Robinson and fellow PSCO Deputy Marie Buchfeller.
"The Phillips County Sheriff's Office is proud to be the leaders for the torch run from Malta to Havre," PCSO Deputy Robinson told the PCN. "Members of the community, MOI (Malta Opportunities Inc.), and local law enforcement members are working together to complete this leg."
According to the event's website, "The mission of LETR is to raise funds and awareness of the Special Olympics Movement Worldwide. Special OIympics is a program that daily reaffirms our beliefs that with hope, love and dedication, we can see achievement and self-worth realized by any individual. It is the belief of LETR that persons with intellectual disabilities, by their involvement in Special Olympics, show the community at large the true meaning of sports and a pure joy towards life.
As mentioned, the event will include members of Malta Opportunities Inc., Malta High School students, and various citizens from the Phillips County Community, that are raising money for the annual Olympic event.
As of Thursday, April 27, the event has raised $22,583 of their $87,000 goal statewide, or roughly 26%.
