Law Enforcement Torch Run


What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run

At its most basic level, the LETR is a running event in which officers and athletes carry the Flame of Hope to the Opening Ceremony of a Special Olympics National Summer or Winter Games. The mission of the LETR is to increase awareness and raise funds for the Special Olympics movement.

What we aim to achieve

As well as increasing awareness of the movement and raising funds, the LETR New Zealand is also working in partnership with Special Olympics New Zealand to promote and support its Athlete Leadership Programme (ALPs) - a programme that aims to provide athletes with the tools and experiences to become leaders in their own right - to speak for themselves.

The LETR kicked off in Kerikeri and Invercargill on 30 September, and two torches made their way up and down the islands, meeting at Parliament on Friday, 24 November. Thank you to all of our Clubs who have done a tremendous job pulling the events together!
