The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is Special Olympics’s largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser. Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional, and World Games. Annually, almost 110,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.
Special Olympics Nevada is proud of the dedicated law enforcement personnel from all over Nevada who are committed to raising thousands of dollars for our amazing Special Olympics athletes and increasing public awareness to our Program.
