Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Ohio 

The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics Ohio is a partnership between Special Olympics and law enforcement agencies throughout the state. Over the course of a week in late June, officers join together to bike, run, and walk through many of Ohio’s counties, carrying the Flame of Hope into Columbus to ignite the ceremonial cauldron to officially begin the Special Olympics Ohio State Summer Games. The Flame of Hope has been proudly carried by tens of thousands of officers for more than 30 years.

The LETR also fundraises in many other capacities, including events like the Cleveland Plane Pull and Polar Plunges. Officers also participate in volunteer opportunities at SOOH sporting events throughout the year.
