Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics
Law enforcement officers from over 300 Florida agencies (police departments, sheriff’s offices, Florida Department of Corrections, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Agency, U.S. Customs, Air Force Police and Marine Patrol) all participate in the state-wide torch run to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Florida. Each year, over 5,000 officers carry the torch on a 1500-mile relay through 66 counties in Florida.
Funds are generated through contributions from individuals and businesses along the way and through sales of the popular Torch Run T-shirts and caps.
This event is held each year prior to Special Olympics Florida State Summer Games. The intrastate torch relay will start at the end of March and culminate at the Opening Ceremonies. Officers from around the state join together to bring the Flame of Hope™ into the stadium.
There are several levels of sponsorship available with benefits for local and statewide exposure. The Law Enforcement Torch Run attracts countless media exposure statewide and is the largest fundraising and public awareness project for Special Olympics Florida.
