Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Wisconsin

June 4, 2020 All day

We are excited to announce the 2020 Virtual Torch Run for Special Olympics Wisconsin!

Nearly 1,000 local & statewide law enforcement volunteers and their communities are raising funds for and awareness of Special Olympics Wisconsin through the Law Enforcement Torch Run®. This year, we will have our first virtual run! Join us as we continue the tradition in carrying the Flame of Hope™. You can register as well as order your t-shirts and commemorative coins immediately, and we want everyone to have them in time for their virtual run. Here are all of the pertinent details:

  • The registration link is https://www.classy.org/event/2020-virtual-torch-run/e283955, and includes a t-shirt.
  • You can place an individual t-shirt order through SpecialOlympicsWisconsin.org/tshirt.
  • It would help to place a bulk order to cut down on shipping costs, and they will be sent directly to your location.
  • There are printable torches and race bibs available on the website: SpecialOlympicsWisconsin.org/torch-run.
  • Please post pictures or videos on social media of when you take your route anytime on Saturday, May 30, or Thursday, June 4, (and be sure to tag @sowisconsin and use #torchrun). If you participate and post on the May 30 event, your photos and videos may be featured in our countdown promotion to the Virtual Opening Ceremony on June 4!
  • This year we have an option to order a t-shirt for a Special Olympics Athlete, so be sure to promote this additional way to raise funds this year!

We hope you can join us in this annual tradition! We appreciate your support during these unprecedented times!
