This event continues to grow as the single largest fund-raiser for the Illinois Special Olympics.

According to Special Olympics Washington, almost 2,000 law enforcement personnel are involved in Washington State LETR efforts and their efforts raise over half a million dollars annually for local programs. They've raised more than $19 million since the Torch Run began in 1986.

"Every year the money in awareness goes to support our Special Olympics athletes", said Cassandra Rucker, Special Olympics' Director of Development in Central NY. Fundraising programs include Plane Pulls, Polar Plunges, Tip-A-Cop and more according to the Special Olympics website.
