Law Enforcement Torch Run

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the most important annual fundraiser benefiting Special Olympics in the world. It also raises public awareness of the cause of people living with an intellectual disability. More than 85,000 policemen, policewomen and peace officers carry the Flame of Hope in 35 countries.

Participating in the many representation and fundraising activities held during the Law Enforcement Torch Run annual campaign helps special athletes make their dreams come true. It gives them the opportunity to compete and surpass themselves. Thanks to your involvement, more and more disabled people will have the right to dream, enter the job market and become more self-sufficient.
