What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run?

The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics is an international series of torch relays, sports-based awareness events, and fundraisers run by law enforcement officers. Events support athletes leading up to each state’s or nation’s Summer Games.  Law enforcement officers raise money in conjunction with respective torch runs for their local Special Olympics programs.

Special Olympics is a nonprofit organization providing year-round training and competition to over 7,000 Special Olympics athletes in the State of Arizona.  There is no cost to athletes to participate in these events because Special Olympics Arizona sponsors all participation fees.  Special Olympics Arizona is supported entirely by private donations, corporate sponsorships and fundraising activities.
