LETR Draft an Athlete


Becki Allen joined Special Olympics BC more than 10 years ago and ever since she has committed herself to practicing hard and doing her best in competition. In 2014, Becki competed in her first national competition in rhythmic gymnastics at the Special Olympics Canada 2014 Summer Games in Vancouver.

Becki was one of 79 athletes drafted by the Law Enforcement Torch Run to the National Games. Various law enforcement agencies worked hard year-round to raise funds through events, overtime drives, and personal donations to draft athletes to these Games.

Funds raised through the Draft an Athlete program are used to purchase specialized equipment, support enhanced training, cover travel expenses, and enable our athletes to participate in elevated competitions.

To find out how you can draft local athletes to Games, please contact Charlotte Taylor at 604.737.3056 or ctaylor@specialolympics.bc.ca.
