This week begins the 1,000 mile journey of the Louisiana Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) . The Torch Run is a year long endeavor in which law enforcement agencies from across Louisiana assist Special Olympics in various fundraising and public awareness events. This week, however they will deliver the “Flame of Hope” to the Opening Ceremonies of the State Summer Games on Friday night.
Today they have started from virtually every corner of the state, running the torch from parish to parish. So, if you see a group of Law Enforcement officers running down the road, don’t be alarmed…it’s just the Louisiana Law Enforcement Torch Run!
