About 2023 Law Enforcement Torch Run
Be a hero and join our Law Enforcement, Fire and Community Members to escort the Special Olympics torch, the “Flame of Hope” on its journey to the 2023 Special Olympics Northern California Summer Games in June.

Tuolumne County’s leg is scheduled for 6/15/23 at 9 am registration 10 am run. Run from the Red Church to the Fairgrounds. BBQ to follow run for the registered participants of the run hosted by the Tuolumne County Raven’s. For additional fun the dunk chair will be there. Bring a swim suit and towel or wear clothing that can get wet.

Hundreds of law enforcement personnel, their agencies and community support members from around Northern California will proudly relay the Flame of Hope through their communities in honor of their commitment and dedication to the 26,000 Special Olympics athletes whose lives are enriched by our Program.

We want YOU, your agency and members of your community to be one of them! Not only will you be raising funds for Special Olympics, but you will also be promoting a positive impact for your agency in the community you serve.

The actual run itself takes place between June 12 and June 23. On Friday, June 23 join us for the Opening Ceremony of Summer Games in Santa Clara where the cauldron will be lit to kickoff the Summer Games weekend.

Participants are encouraged to register by Monday, May 29 to guarantee shirt arrival by your run date and to take advantage of the early runner special as fees increase from $40 to $45. Your registration fee includes a commemorative dri-fit Torch Run t-shirt that you can wear with pride on your run.

We encourage all personnel to go the extra mile and raise additional funds for our athletes. We have additional incentives gifts you can earn so the more you raise, the more we want to thank you.

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, regional, State and world competitions.

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.

We hope to see you there!
