About 2024 Law Enforcement Torch Run

Be a hero and join our Law Enforcement community to escort the Special Olympics torch, the “Flame of Hope,” on its journey to the 2024 Special Olympics Northern California Summer Games in Santa Clara in June. Hundreds of law enforcement personnel and their agencies from around Northern California will proudly relay the "Flame of Hope" through their communities in honor of their commitment and dedication to the Special Olympics athletes whose lives are enriched by our program. Not only will you be raising funds for Special Olympics, but you will also be promoting a positive impact for your agency in the community you serve.  

The run itself takes place between June 17 and June 28 and the torch will light the cauldron at the Opening Ceremony of Summer Games.  Register by May 27th, to take advantage of the discounted registration fee of $40.  On May 28th, the registration fee is $45.  Your registration includes a commemorative dri-fit Torch Run t-shirt to wear with pride during your run.  Participants are encouraged to register by May 28 in order to guarantee arrival of your runner shirts for your run.  

We encourage all personnel to go the extra mile and raise additional funds for our athletes.  We have incentives gifts you can earn, so the more you raise, the more we want to thank you. 


The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grassroots 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, regional, state and world competitions. Annually, almost 110,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebrating diversity, uniting communities around the globe.

Why Participate?

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.

How Your Support Makes a Difference

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.
