Law Enforcement plays an important role in Special Olympics, with the Chatham-Kent Police hosting the 2024 School Championships!

The Ontario Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics.  Known honourably 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 Provincial, National, Regional and World Games.  Worldwide annually, more than 97,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.

The Torch Run will help to kick-off the events of the 2024 School Championships, with the Flame of Hope being carried into the Opening Ceremony during the Final Leg.
