LETR for Special Olympics

Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest year-round fundraising event benefiting Special Olympics Illinois. The annual intrastate relay and its various fundraising projects have two goals: to raise money and to gain awareness for the athletes who participate in Special Olympics Illinois. Approximately 3,000 officers representing every branch of law enforcement, including Officers from the Huntley Police Department, will carry the Flame of Hope nearly 1,500 miles, running through thousands of Illinois communities to its final destination-the Opening Ceremonies of the Special Olympic Illinois Summer Games in Normal, Illinois.
