"Be A Fan" Torch Run

The Be a Fan Torch Run for Special Olympics Pennsylvania is a segmented non-competitive run (approx. 150 miles run) with 53 segments ranging from a 2.5 mile to 4 miles. The Run will take place May 21-23, 2024 and feature over 500 participants representing more than 50 law enforcement teams. Our Torch Run partners are thrilled to be back in person and running the Flame of Hope for this year’s Summer Games. We are thankful to again partners with Energy Transfer, SOPA’s premier “Guardians of the Flame” Law Enforcement Torch Run partner.

The Be a Fan Torch Run also serves as a run in memory of fallen officers from across the state and will not officially end until the Flame of Hope lit the cauldron for Summer Games Opening Ceremonies on June 6th. 

If you would like to support our amazing LETR partners as they run to raise awareness for nearly 13,000 athletes across the state of Pennsylvania, you can do so here!
