NORWALK, Conn. -- Several members of the Norwalk Department of Police Service recently participated in the Connecticut Law Enforcement Torch Run with the Connecticut Special Olympians.

The officers were also joined by the @Choices4Success running club.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) is a public awareness vehicle and grassroots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games.

Annually, more than 97,000 law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

The LETR for Special Olympics engages law enforcement worldwide, championing acceptance and inclusion for people with intellectual disabilities, starting first with their own communities.

Over the years, the Torch Run has evolved and now encompasses a variety of fundraising platforms to include Plane Pulls, Polar Plunges, Tip-A-Cops and more.

Since its inception, LETR has raised more than half a billion dollars.
