The dedication of more than 97,000 police chiefs, police officers, Secret Service and FBI agents, military police, sheriffs, state troopers, prison guards and other law enforcement personnel in 51 US programs, and 23 nations generate more than $60 million annually and raise huge amounts of awareness for Special Olympics athletes.
With true volunteers leading the charge, the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) enables Special Olympics Illinois to achieve the task of 80 cents of every dollar going directly to the athlete programs.
Special Olympics Illinois provides training and competition in 18 sports, through more than 200 competitions, involving more than 23,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and 14,000 Young Athletes and peer partners ages 2 – 7 with and without intellectual disabilities each year.
