Special Olympics Torch Run

Did you know that the Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics is the movement's largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle?
At its most basic level the Torch Run is an actual running event, in which officers, supporters and athletes run the Flame of Hope™ to the Special Olympics of Maine Opening Ceremonies.

The Torch Run is more than just a run and encompasses a variety of fundraising vehicles such as T-shirt and merchandise sales, special events to include polar bear plunges, tip-a-cop and building sits and a host of other events that have local, state and national appeal.

For athletes and officers alike, the Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics is a story of success, love, respect and commitment between law enforcement officers and Special Olympics athletes.

The Kennebunk Law Enforcement Team is collecting donations for Special Olympics Maine here.
