Law enforcement personnel from local, county, state, and federal agencies will be carrying the “Flame of Hope” in nineteen ‘legs’ of the Wyoming Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Wyoming athletes.
Mike Fernandez is a detective with the Cheyenne Police Department. Every year local law enforcement joins forces with athletes of Special Olympics in what is known as the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The run took place in Cheyenne, WY on May 9th at 9:30 A.M. The torch was lit and the flame was carried down Central Ave. from 28th St. to Lincolnway Ave. Runners traveled west on Lincolnway Ave. and then north on Capitol Ave. arriving at the Supreme Court Building, where Governor Gordon provided a short speech to the athletes of Special Olympics.
During the Torch Run, Wyoming Law Enforcement were wearing bright yellow t-shirts while carrying the “Flame of Hope” across our state. Visit their website for more information on the Wyoming Law Enforcement Torch Run or to purchase a T-shirt.
