Law Enforcement Torch Run

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the primary community-based fundraising initiative for the Special Olympics. Founded in Wichita, KS, in 1981, the Torch Run has grown to include nearly 90,000 police professionals in over 35 countries around the world. Run by various police professionals – including police officers, corrections and support staff, and volunteers – the LETR raises funds and awareness through many different community events. These events include Polar Bear Plunges, motorcycle runs, t-shirt and hat sales, and media events like the NHL Alumni Tour.
