On Friday, June 11, 2021, more than 3,000 officers took to the streets of their local communities on one of 26 separate routes to help carry the “Flame of Hope” – a distance of nearly 750 miles throughout the Garden state to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics New Jersey. This year’s event is expected to raise over $400,000 by the end of 2021!

This year saw a return to the Schools Program and officers were able to present medals at the Summer Sports Finals over the weekend.

We are on our way to finish the second half of 2021 strong and are looking ahead to an even better 2022. As always, the Law Enforcement Torch Run will continue to be a big part of our success! Thank you to everyone who participated and raised funds for this year’s event!
