In 2019, the Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run raised
over $3.3 million in support of Special Olympics Ontario

Individuals with an intellectual disability deserve respect and acceptance. Their involvement with Special Olympics programs is more than just sport training and competition: it is a lifeline to friendship and a healthy, active lifestyle. With your support, we are creating those lifelines for athletes across the province.

Thank you for your support!

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness and grassroots fundraising organization for Special Olympics globally. The LETR holds a number of year-round fundraising and awareness events in communities across Ontario and Canada. In Ontario, the LETR is recognized as the charity of choice for the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), with all funds raised directly benefiting Special Olympics Ontario.

As retired Chief Richard LaMunyon once said, “What started in 1981…as a flicker of hope for Special Olympics has now become a roaring flame of stability for Special Olympics athletes worldwide.”
