Lee Holiday Sweater Fun Run brings money to ‘Special’ cause

LEE — A festive display of generosity went dashing through the streets of the downtown this past weekend.

More than 120 runners and an estimated 50 walkers stepped off as part of the LETR (Law Enforcement Torch Run) Holiday Sweater Fun Run, according to Lee Police Chief Jeffrey Roosa. The fifth annual event raised more than $8,000 for Special Olympics. While donations are down from previous years, Roosa said was still very pleased with the community support.

“The community has been going through a lot. We didn’t go after corporate sponsors this year. The community has gone out of their way for me and we also had Khali [Zabian],” said Roosa. “The town always comes out for everyone.”

Roosa has been battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease since 2017. Nineteen-year-old Zabian has been recovering after being struck by a motor vehicle in August.
