Support SOSC for the 2022 USA Games Final Leg

Before competition begins in June at the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando, an elite group of law enforcement officers and Special Olympics athletes will escort the Special Olympics Flame of Hope on a journey across Florida. Law enforcement officers along with Special Olympics athletes will make up the prestigious “Final Leg” team for the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR).

We are excited to have local LETR officer Mike Zabaraky and SOSC athlete Michael Leon representing Southern California this year!

Since the first Special Olympics USA Games in 2006, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes from across the United States have carried the Flame of Hope in the LETR Final Leg to usher the start of the national competition.

Please show your support for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics by donating to a fundraising page. With your donation, you can be a part of enriching the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and their communities through sports, education, and healthy living. Your donation ensures athletes can be on the field 365 days a year, spreading joy and making memories.
