Law Enforcement Torch Run 5k Run/Walk

October 6, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fund raiser for Special Olympics. Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” in to the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games.

Each year, hundreds of dedicated Law Enforcement officers participate in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run. The event shows our appreciation to local law enforcement for keeping our city safe, while also raising awareness and funds for individuals with intellectual disabilities. This 5K Walk/Run unites the community by bringing together law enforcement personnel and citizens all working towards the same goal of acceptance and inclusion.

This is a CERTIFIED 5K course and anyone can participate run or walk at your own pace.
