Law Enforcement Torch Run®

 “I had never been involved with LETR or Special Olympics prior to 2015 but when an RCMP Officer gave me the opportunity to join the LETR committee, I never hesitated. Raising awareness and fundraising through the LETR in support of Special Olympics has been and is a rewarding and fulfilling experience. When you can see the programs the athletes are involved in and the successes of all the athletes and their families, both locally and internationally at Special Olympics events, there is no doubt that being involved was a great decision...” 

- Yukon Law Enforcement Torch Run committee member Laurie Tamminen

 

The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics is to increase awareness and raise funds for the Special Olympics movement. The Law Enforcement Torch Run® is the largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics. Since its inception in 1981, it has grown extensively worldwide with over 97,000 volunteers spanning 46 countries, and raising more than US$460 million for the Special Olympics movement. Fundraising is only part of what the officers involved with the initiative give to the movement. Our athletes say law enforcement officers are truly supportive of the cause – extending to them friendship, acceptance and encouragement. Over $10,000 was raised for Special Olympics Yukon in 2016.
