All participants will receive an official Ultra Soft Torch Run Tee Shirt showing their support of Law Enforcement and what they do for our communities.  The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run®, (LETR) in partnership with our communities, is to support Special Olympics Maryland through fundraising and public awareness while enhancing the quality of life of our athletes.

It is a year-round fundraising campaign that culminates every year at the Special Olympics Maryland Summer Games in June.  Whether you want to escort the Special Olympics Torch, the Flame of Hope, with other civilians and Law Enforcement personnel on its way to the Summer Games Opening Ceremonies, or want to raise funds for Special Olympics, everyone in the community is invited to participate.

Your $35 registration will earn you an Ultra Soft Cotton Tee Shirt.  Visit www.calvertorchrun.com to register you or your team.  Contact Sherry Draheim 410-535-1600 x2450 or Det. Sarah Jernigan 410-535-1600 x2772 to purchase a shirt/hat or if you have any questions.
