The Louisiana Law Enforcement Special Olympics “Flame of Hope” Torch Run involving area law entered Natchitoches Parish May 15 through Red River Parish. Early Wednesday morning the law enforcement runners continued their trek through the south of the parish and into Rapides Parish.
Each year the torch relay involves more than 1500 law enforcement officers and personnel representing more than 200 law enforcement agencies across the State of Louisiana.
The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) for Special Olympics is to increase awareness and raise funds for the Special Olympics movement. Each year, the LETR initiative grows larger and better.
