Law Enforcement Torch Run®

“I became involved with the Law Enforcement Torch Run to make a difference in the lives of the athletes however I never anticipated the difference the athletes would have made in my life in return.”

   - 2016 Yukon Law Enforcement Torch Run

Presented by Whitehorse Home Hardware, the mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics Yukon 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.
