"Be A Fan" Torch Run
Thank you to those who participated in the 2021 Be a Fan Torch Run for Special Olympics PA, a segmented non-competitive run (approx. 150 miles run) with 53 segments ranging from a 2.5 mile to 4 miles. The Run took place from June 7th - 9th, featured over 500 participants representing more than 50 law enforcement teams, and raised more than $50,000. Our Torch Run partners were thrilled to be back in person and running the Flame of Hope for this year’s Virtual 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 Be a Fan Torch Run also served as a run in memory of fallen officers from across the state and didn't officially end until the Flame of Hope lit the cauldron for the Virtual Summer Games Opening Ceremonies. Opening Ceremonies aired on Facebook and YouTube on Sunday, June 13th at 7 p.m.
