The Law Enforcement Torch Run provides law enforcement agencies throughout Northern California the opportunity to promote a positive and civic-minded image to their communities.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run raises thousands of dollars for Special Olympics Northern California which supports the many programs and services Special Olympics provides to children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Not only is there financial support generated by fundraising efforts, but lasting friendships are formed between our athletes and law enforcement through various events and engagement opportunities year-round.
Special Olympics provides sports training and competition opportunities as well as educational and health programming at no cost to the athletes or their families.
The skills athletes gain through their participation goes far beyond the playing field. It builds their confidence and self-esteem giving them the life skills to productive members of their community.
