Harrisonburg Police have special plans for Valley leg of Special Olympics Torch Run

Law Enforcement Torch RunThe long-standing tradition of the Harrisonburg Police Department supporting Special Olympics will continue the week of June 8th by participating in the Virtual Torch Run, but it won’t be as “virtual” as you might think.

HPD organizers for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run have changed the Harrisonburg to Verona local leg to include a new 100-mile LETR Bike Ride around Rockingham County and a more traditional 21-mile run around the City of Harrisonburg.

Both groups will be considerably smaller this year due to social distancing, but the enthusiasm to support Special Olympic athletes remains strong.

The virtual part of the Torch Run consists of online donations and using apps to track runners statewide to reach a goal of 1,900 miles during the week for Special Olympics: #1900FORSOVA.

Please consider donating to the LETR Team Harrisonburg by following this link and generously providing support for athletes across the Commonwealth who are always quick to recite, “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt!”
