The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Special Olympics is an unprecedented global movement which, through quality sports training and competition, improves the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and, in turn, the lives of everyone they touch.
Special Olympics empowers people with intellectual disabilities to realize their full potential and develop their skills through year-round sports training and competition.
As a result, Special Olympics athletes become fulfilled and productive members of their families and the communities in which they live.
Special Olympics is an experience that is energizing, healthy, skillful, welcoming and joyful.

WHAT IS LETR?
The Law Enforcement Torch Run® is the single largest grassroots fundraising effort for Special Olympics. The two primary goals of the Law Enforcement Torch Run® are to raise funds and create awareness for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
The state of Idaho is growing at a record pace, and so is our need to provide quality programming to our Special Olympics athletes. Law enforcement across the Gem State is answering the call, with over 130 Idaho law enforcement agencies doing their part to raise money and awareness for our athletes. Law enforcement is a critical piece of our mission and we can’t think of a better partner.
You will see local officers and deputies at competitions awarding medals to our athletes, raising money at Tip-A-Cop© events at local restaurants, hosting golf tournaments and dozens of other special events throughout the state, all in the name of our Special Olympics athletes.
