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.
An inspiring, joyful phenomenon, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC 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 British Columbia, the BC LETR has helped increase the athlete base to more than 4,800 registered athletes in 55 communities around the province.
Many BC LETR events take place throughout the year, with various organizations participating including municipal police departments, RCMP, and other law and peace enforcement agencies across the province.
BC LETR members raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics BC through events and initiatives including Torch Runs, Polar Plunges, golf tournaments, and overtime drives.
