Starting tomorrow, November 8th, members from our State office will be in Indiana for the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Conference. According to Special Olympics Indiana’s website, the “LETR International Conference allows volunteers from all corners of the globe to mingle, share inspirational stories and learn from one another as they collaborate to improve their local Torch Run programs.”
This meeting will allow fundraisers and Law Enforcement from around the WORLD to share their ideas on how to raise more awareness for Special Olympics!

Hayes Howell was the first Special Olympics athlete to ever qualify for the National Junior Gold Bowling Tournament. In his final practice before leaving Louisiana to head for Indiana, he bowled a 290! While in Indiana he did very well and was in the top third of males in his division. We are glad to have him home, but so proud of his accomplishments.
Hayes’ bowling skills have already qualified him for over $1,000 in scholarships for Baton Rouge Community College!
While in Indiana, he visited the Indianapolis Speedway and the Special Olympics Indiana office! View the pictures here
