Each summer, law enforcement officials carry the Flame of Hope across the state culminating with the Torch Run Final Leg, and the lighting of the cauldron to officially open the Special Olympics Louisiana State Summer Games in Hammond. This torch relay involves more than 1,500 law enforcement officers and personnel representing more than 200 law enforcement agencies across Louisiana. The 2015 Law Enforcement Torch Run will take place on May 18th-May 22nd.
Special Olympics Louisiana athletes, staff, and volunteers were thrilled to welcome Jase Robertson, from the hit TV show Duck Dynasty, to State Golf and Cycling in Monroe. Thank you for coming and checking out the competitions to support SOLA! We appreciate you.
In 100 days, the 2015 Special Olympics World Games will begin when the cauldron is lit at the Opening Ceremony in Los Angeles. You can get involved by carrying the torch as the Flame of Hope travels across the country, hitting every state, in the first-ever Special Olympics Unified Relay Across America presented by Bank of America.
