Students and Staff Support the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics

The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) is the, “largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics.” Known, “honorably as the Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the ‘Flame of Hope,’ into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions.”

The students of Latham Centers were proud to support the runners as they passed campus on Route 6a on June 1st, 2017 – they cheered, held signs, and genuinely thanked the runners for their support. Colorful signs read, “Special Olympics,” and “Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics,” as well as, “Thank You!” Students learned about the “Flame of Hope,” which symbolizes, “courage and celebration of diversity, uniting communities around the globe.”

The Cape Cod leg of the run started at 5am in Provincetown, weaved along Route 6 and Route 6a, and ended 70 miles from the start point in Buzzard’s Bay. Thank you, on behalf of all Latham Centers’ students, adult residents, staff, and Board of Director’s for your generosity in running. We appreciate everything that you do for our community and Special Olympics.
