So much happening!


Were looking for sponsors.  Sponsors to the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Wyoming underwrite the great work of Law Enforcement Personnel and their interaction and support of athletes.  For every athlete that stands a little taller, feels a little more confidence, knows they are valued in their community because of their relationship with LETR, we can thank a sponsor for allowing that to happen. 

Is there a business, organization, or individual in your community that would be interested?  Our Sponsor deadline is Monday, March 5th in order to assure that they can be recognized on our shirts.  Click Here for Sponsorship Benefits

 What is the Torch Run?

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Wyoming is part of the worldwide movement's largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle.

At its most basic level, officers and athletes – the Guardians of the Flame – run the Special Olympics “Flame of Hope” to the Opening Ceremonies of Special Olympics competitions. As a whole, the Torch Run encompasses a variety of year-round fundraising events such as Jackalope Jumps, Tip A Cop, LETR Merchandise Sales, Fire Truck Pulls, Strikes for SO, Truck Convoy,  corporate donations, and other special events! All fundraising proceeds directly benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Wyoming.  Most importantly, officers continually Interact with Special Olympics athletes and are the primary medal presenters at the area and state competitions.
