The Law Enforcement Torch Run
The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics is to raise funds for and awareness of the Special Olympics Movement worldwide. Special Olympics is a program that daily reaffirms our beliefs that with hope, love and dedication we can see achievement and self-worth realized by any individual. It is our belief that persons with intellectual disabilities, by their involvement in Special Olympics, show the community at large the true meaning of sports and a pure joy towards life.
