Cst. Nancy How­ell is tak­ing part in the 2017 Spe­cial Olympics World Win­ter Games.

Gan­der will have even more rep­re­sen­ta­tion at the 2017 Spe­cial Olympics World Win­ter Games.

Cst. Nancy How­ell of the RCMP Traffic Ser­vices Cen­tral in Gan­der is in Aus­tria this week to be a team leader in the Law En­force­ment Torch Run.

How­ell will rep­re­sent the RCMP along with more than 80 law en­force­ment of­fi­cers from around the world who will serve as Guardians of the Flame, run­ning the Flame of Hope through the coun­try to wel­come the Spe­cial Olympics.

From March 9-18, the Flame of Hope passed through 47 cities and towns through­out Aus­tria, end­ing with the de­liv­ery of the flame to the open­ing cer­e­monies on March 18, at WM Sta­dium Planai in Sch­lad­ming.

How­ell and other law en­force­ment of­fi­cers ran side by side with in­ter­na­tional Spe­cial Olympians, cre­at­ing aware­ness and ex­cite­ment for the 2017 World Win­ter Games.

How­ell isn’t the only rep­re­sen­ta­tion Gan­der has in Win­ter Games.

Spe­cial Olympian Floressa Har­ris, com­pet­ing in snow­shoe­ing, and Dr. Carmel Casey, serv­ing as a doc­tor with Team Canada, will be tak­ing part in the Aus­tria games as well.
