Law Enforcement Torch Run

Guardians of the Flame

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into the Opening Ceremony of local MB LETR Logocompetitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. Annually, almost 110,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

The LETR for Special Olympics engages law enforcement worldwide championing acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities, starting first with their own communities.Since 1989, the Manitoba LETR has raised over $2.5 million dollars for Special Olympics Manitoba athletes. Many Manitoba LETR events take place throughout the year, with the generous support from agencies across the province.
