Help us Carry the Flame of Hope!

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is more than a run: it’s the largest public awareness and grass-roots fundraising program for Special Olympics in the world, engaging officers and agencies as champions for acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities. In Indiana, more than a thousand officers participate in LETR activities and Special Olympics events each year, culminating in the annual presentation of the torch during Opening Ceremonies at the Indiana Summer Games.

Known as the “Flame of Hope,” the torch symbolizes courage and diversity while celebrating the unification of communities across the globe. We salute the dedicated supporters who carry the torch in their hearts and minds wherever they go — the men and women we call “Guardians of the Flame.”

Kicking off our 2020 Virtual Summer Games, the Flame of Hope Torch Run is a unique fundraising event bringing together law enforcement officers and agencies from across the state to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics athletes while practicing social distancing in their own communities.

And remember — all funds raised by the Flame of Hope Torch Run directly benefit more than 18,000 Special Olympics Indiana athletes!
