'Free the Fuzz' Helping Local Special Olympic Athletes

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Two Regional Police officers and one Alberta Sheriff are stuck outside the two Lethbridge Walmarts until 6 o'clock Saturday night.

It's for the 'Free the Fuzz' campaign, which is aiming to raise at least $25,000 for local Special Olympic athletes.

Constable Blaine Stodolka with Regional Police explained that the money helps pay for things like training, coaching travel for the athletes. He added that the event is part of the Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run, which is an international organization that helps to raise money for the Special Olympics. He added that without the support, many of the athletes wouldn't be able to compete in their sports.

You can help out by making a donation at either Walmart, where they're also selling hotdogs, drinks and t-shirts.

Last years event raised $23,000 for local athletes.
