Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is an innovative initiative powered by dedicated law enforcement personnel around the world who want to help Special Olympics athletes experience acceptance, achievement, and admiration through sport. 

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is an inspiring, joyful phenomenon that has raised more than $4 million in British Columbia since 1990. To date, the LETR has raised more than $700 million for Special Olympics programs around the world. In B.C., the LETR has helped increase the athlete base to more than 4,800 registered athletes in 55 communities around the province.

Many LETR events take place throughout the year, with various organizations participating including municipal police departments, RCMP, and special forces such as the Canada Border Services Agency, Canadian National Police Service, Correctional Service of Canada, and Metro Vancouver Transit Police.

The annual signature event of the LETR is the Torch Run, which takes place in communities around the province.
