During the month of May every year, hundreds of LETR officers and Special Olympics Colorado athletes carry the Special Olympics Flame of Hope through their communities around the state of Colorado, accumulating more than 1,500 miles in anticipation of the Special Olympics Colorado Summer Games. On the West Steps of the Capitol Building in Denver, three flames are unified into a single torch, which will then head down the 16th Street Mall to the Pepsi Center before arriving at its final destination later that week — the host city for Summer Games.
Additionally, Law Enforcement agencies across the state host Torch Runs in their own towns.
