The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics is to increase awareness and raise funds for the Special Olympics movement. LETR is a running event in which officers and athletes carry the Flame of Hope to the Opening Ceremony of Special Olympics local competitions, state and provincial Games, and National Summer or Winter Games. In addition, every two years, law enforcement officers from around the world gather to carry the Flame of Hope in a Final Leg torch run in honor of the Special Olympics World Summer or World Winter Games.
Special Olympics New York has 67,162 athletes training and competing year-round in 22 Olympics-style sports. Our athletes and their families or caregivers are NEVER CHARGED to participate! It costs $400 to support training and competition for one athlete for one sports season. Set your goal at $400 and you have sponsored an athlete for an entire season!
