The Virtual Law Enforcement Torch Run
Special Olympics Florida is incredibly proud of their partnership with Law Enforcement. The Law Enforcement Torch Run has been held in Florida since 1984 with agencies throughout the state of Florida acting as Guardians of the Flame as they carry the Flame of Hope through each of our counties culminating with the Final Leg of the Torch Run during the Opening Ceremonies of our State Summer Games.
For the first time ever Special Olympics Florida have had to cancel the State Summer Games. The Final Leg of our Torch Run will now take place during the Opening Ceremonies of the 2020 Fall Classic Games at ESPN Wide World of Sports on November 13th.
They understand that our law enforcement agencies are stretched thin due to the Covid-19 pandemic but feel it is essential to honor this important tradition. We also know that this will require ingenuity and creativity.
With that in mind, we are taking our Torch Run VIRTUAL. Special Olympics Florida is challenging our athletes, families and fans to support their local agency’s Torch Run by committing to our virtual mileage challenge.
