PUEBLO, Colo. (KRDO) -- A "Stronger Together" Virtual Run kicks off today in Pueblo.
Benji Caledera, a Case Manager for the Pueblo LEAD (Law Enforcement Assisted Division) program says, "With the current situation between the pandemic, protests, and a call to defund the police, we have been torn apart more than we ever have before. A need for the community to come together is greater now than ever before."
Organizers of the event say they want to bring awareness to the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion program, since it works to keep people struggling with substance abuse out of the criminal justice system.
Participants can pick up a free t-shirt for the event at 'Stay Invincible Colorado' and can participate anytime and anywhere. Organizers says its a great opportunity for the community to come together in a safe way.
Participants can go to 2101 East Evans between 8:00am and noon Saturday, August 8th for a free t-shirt.
