For over 30 years, Utah’s law enforcement community has been supporting Special Olympics Utah and individuals with intellectual disabilities through the Law Enforcement Torch Runs (LETR). At its most basic level the Torch Run is an actual running event in which officers and athletes run the Flame of Hope™ to the Opening Ceremonies of local Special Olympics competitions and State and National and World Games.
This year, the final leg of the 2017 Torch Runs will be in Utah County in Provo/Orem as they run the Flame of Hope to the 2017 Utah State Summer Games Block Party and Celebration at Orchard Park located at University Place in Orem, UT.
We sincerely appreciate our law enforcement officers and agencies who have again planned torch runs in their communities for 2017!
Support your local Torch Run as a volunteer and spectator!
