About the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR)
LETR is Special Olympics’ largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. Law enforcement (the Guardians of the Flame) and athletes, light the “Flame of Hope” at events and competitions throughout the state to embody unity and inclusiveness.
Typically, during the months of May through October, law enforcement throughout Colorado carry the “Flame of Hope” during the Torch Run Series.
Support this cause to raise awareness and funds for individuals with intellectual disabilities in Colorado!
