"Be A Fan" Torch Run
The “Be a Fan” Torch Run is a 3-day, 150-mile run from Pittsburgh to State College featuring over 500 runners representing more than 50 law enforcement teams that are accompanied or cheered on by local Special Olympics athletes, will be held virtually this year. 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 Virtual Summer Games Opening Ceremonies.
