The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics Wisconsin is to raise funds for and awareness of the Special Olympics movement. Special Olympics is a program that daily reaffirms our belief that with hope and dedication we can recognize achievement and see the self-worth of any individual. It is our belief that individuals with intellectual disabilities, by their involvement in Special Olympics, show the community there are no limits to human potential or the human spirit.
The LETR for Special Olympics is the movement’s largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle in the world. More than 85,000 law enforcement officers carry the Flame of Hope™ across 40 nations and raised more than $42 million in 2011. Dedicated LETR supporters in Wisconsin raised nearly $2.4 million of this international total. Wisconsin’s Law Enforcement Torch Run ranks sixth largest in the world!
Since 1986, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Wisconsin has raised more than $19.2 million with more than 1,000 law enforcement officers participating annually. Please join us in 2012 to celebrate each and every law enforcement officer who has helped keep the flame burning bright for over 25 years.
