Every year, law enforcement officers in New Jersey exchange their uniforms for running gear as they carry the “Flame of Hope” throughout the Garden State into the Special Olympics New Jersey Summer Games Opening Ceremony.
After traveling more than 750 miles, this flame will eventually make its way to light the cauldron to signal the official start of the Summer Games, the largest competition event of the year.
This fundraiser, one of the largest annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey events, not only raises funds but is a chance for the law enforcement community to show their support and admiration of our athletes.
As a member of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, I always feel privileged to carry the torch. This is our chance to become a champion for the cause, to show the members of our communities how talented our local Special Olympics athletes are.– Chief Robert Belfiore, Director of the New Jersey Torch Run
