The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, in partnership with our communities, is to support Special Olympics Colorado programs through fundraising and public relations while enhancing the quality of life for our athletes.
Officers also raise money through Polar Plunge, Tip-A-Cop®, Plane Pull®, car shows, and other special events. Thanks to our strong volunteer base, all funds raised by law enforcement personnel go to Special Olympics Colorado. The donations are directed into program support and development, and help offset expenses for athlete participation in local, regional, state and international competitions as well as training, workshops and conferences.
Through their combined fundraising activities and events, Colorado Law Enforcement Torch Run® is the largest financial supporter collectively for Special Olympics Colorado and its more than 14,200 athletes.
We are proud to have our LETR officers and leaders as partners and appreciate the tireless efforts of the leadership and law enforcement personnel involved. Please contact Jan Gordon for more information on how to get you or your agency involved in LETR.
