2021 “Be a Fan” Torch Run
The Be a Fan Torch Run for Special Olympics PA is a segmented non-competitive run (approx. 150 miles run) with 53 segments ranging from a 2.5 mile to 4 miles, taking place from June 7 - 9, 2021. The Run features over 500 participants representing more than 50 law enforcement teams that are accompanied or cheered on by local Special Olympics athletes. Our Torch Run partners are thrilled to be back in person and running the Flame of Hope for this year’s Summer Games and the 40th anniversary of the Law Enforcing Torch Run. Energy Transfer is SOPA’s premier “Guardians of the Flame” Law Enforcement Torch Run partner.
The Run is led by members of law enforcement from across Western and Central, PA, all of whom take part in this unique and inspiring journey.
The Be a Fan Torch Run also serves as a run in memory of fallen officers from across the state and won’t officially end until the Flame of Hope lights the cauldron during Summer Games Opening Ceremonies.
