Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
From the Gasoline Alley Harley Davidson booth, Ride Like a Local sat down with Paul Manuel.
Paul was in the booth raising money and awareness for Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. This terrific cause has almost 100,000 members of law enforcement all over the world. Last year over 56 million dollars was raised for athletes of all ages and disabilities to participate in the special Olympics.
Alberta Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics raffled off three Harley Davidson bikes as a fundraiser. Special thanks to Gasoline Alley Harley Davidson for donating the bikes at a reduced cost. Also, a portion of all bikes purchased from Jan 1 to May 31 will go to this more than worthy cause!!
