Lake Forest Park police officers as well as deputies from the King County Sheriff's Office, joined forces for the annual Torch Run to celebrate Special Olympics Washington on August 20, 2021. 

Carrying the Special Olympics torch

For 40 years, Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) has raised awareness and funding for Special Olympics all over the world! Locally, the annual statewide Torch Run which traditionally precedes the state Spring Games, is the heart and soul of the Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign. 

This is the most symbolic event with Guardians of the Flame® carrying and presenting the Flame of Hope to start the Games.

The run includes deputies, Olympians, and families

With the cancellation of the 2021 State Spring Games due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Special Olympics Washington, along with the support of hundreds of local law enforcement volunteers still hosted the annual Torch Run but in smaller batches – locally in their area.
