Law Enforcement Torch Run SpeechChris Sproule
The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. Annually, almost 110,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe. This past year, I was asked to be a keynote speaker at their annual international conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. As a member of the fire service for over 20 years, I was honored to be able to speak to over 1500 law enforcement officers and share my story. Click HERE to see the video.
