The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Nebraska (LETR) will be hosting Torch Run events throughout the state September 7-17th. These Torch Runs bring together local law enforcement, Special Olympics Nebraska (SONE) athletes, supporters and volunteers to run the SONE “Flame of Hope” through their community to raise money and awareness for SONE and the organization’s 7,800 athletes who have an intellectual disability.
The Torch Run typically culminates at the SONE State Summer Games. Since we did not have our usual Summer Games this year, the final Torch Run will take place on Saturday, September 18th at the Truck Convoy in Grand Island. Law enforcement, athletes and community members will run the torch into the opening ceremonies of the Truck Convoy at Bosselman Travel Center.
