1,200 officers from local, county, state, federal, and military agencies go above the normal call of duty and run in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run® Final Leg. The officers champion acceptance and inclusion as they carry the "Flame of Hope" 1,500 miles and through 200 Southern California communities. The Final Leg ends at the Summer Games Opening Ceremony, where the torch lights the cauldron to symbolize the start of the Games. Along the way, they educate the community about the gifts, talents and abilities of people with intellectual disabilities and promote unity and respect for all.
