2022 Law Enforcement Torch Run

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office

 

Every year Law Enforcement agencies all over Northern California raise thousands of dollars by hosting a variety of fundraising events  which support the Special Olympics programs provided to our athletes at no cost to them or their families.  The culminating event is the Torch Run where law enforcement personnel raise funds for the honor of running the Special Olympics Torch, "The Flame of Hope" through their communities as a sign of their dedication and commitment to Special Olympics athletes.

The Sacramento County Sheriff's Office was the 5th largest fundraising agency (Sheriff) in Northern California for 2021.  The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. Annually, almost 110,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.
