The Final Leg Team assembles in East Brunswick

Torch Runners, Special Olympics Athletes and Final Leg Team Leaders from a total of 52 LETR Programs converged on the Final Leg Team Headquarters in East Brunswick, New Jersey yesterday. The Final Leg participants were kitted out with their running uniforms and met with their team members for the first time. A Team Welcome Dinner was held last night where the six Final Leg Teams and Support and Documentation Teams were introduced and the ‘getting to know you’ phase commenced.

With many of the runners travelling many hours to get here, it was then time to grab some sleep before the first day of running in New York City.
