Special Olympics of Boone County invites you and/or your organization to be a part of the fourth Boone County Law Enforcement Torch Run event to benefit Special Olympics. Law enforcement officers, joined by Special Olympics athletes, unified partners, volunteers and community members will be carrying or escorting the “flame of hope” by running with their friends through Boone County communities on April 28.
The LETR will take off promptly at 9 a.m. from the Lebanon Public Safety Building, and runners and bicyclers will travel through Boone County and end their trek at Zionsville’s Lions Park at approximately 11:30 a.m. An after-party celebration hosted by the Zionsville Lions Club will celebrate the event.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. in Lebanon, followed by opening ceremonies and the torch lighting. There will also be registration stops at the Whitestown Fire Dept. and Zionsville Community High School.
Law enforcement personnel have been designated by Special Olympics as the protectors of the “flame of hope.” In celebration of this designation, Special Olympics Boone County is honored to host this event. The statewide LETR will conclude with the final leg taking place June 1 in Terre Haute.
Organizations, businesses and community members are encouraged to help with the event. Donation options include the $75 gold-sponsor, $50 silver-sponsor and $25 bronze-sponsor packages. Recognition includes signage at the after-party, and notification of sponsorship and payment must be received no later than Friday. More information is available by calling 765-483-9738.
Your business also can donate beverages or food items for the after-party.
Participants in the run must raise a minimum of $30 in pledges to participate. All runners receive a special shirt designating them as an LETR participant. Runners must register no later than Friday to guarantee receipt of a shirt.
