Law Enforcement Torch Run
The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics movement. Known as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into Opening Ceremonies of local competitions. They also carry it into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. There are over 97,000 law enforcement members that carry the “Flame of Hope” annually. The flame symbolizes courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe. Over 150,000 law enforcement officers in all 50 states, 12 Canadian provinces and 48 countries carry the “Flame of Hope” annually.
