Law enforcement has been involved in raising funds for the Special Olympics Florida by participating in annual Torch Runs throughout the state. This event is a way for the public to become involved and support the mission of Special Olympics Florida.
The course is in downtown Winter Haven beginning in the area of the library and continuing around the beautiful Lake Silver.
The race entry fee includes a Special Olympics Torch Run t-shirt (cotton or dri-fit). Vendors will be at the finish line along with music and snacks.
Special Olympics athletes will also be in attendance.
New this year, we have FINISHER MEDALS for ALL 5k participants!!
*** There is also a VIRTUAL run. Register for the virtual run, we will send you your shirt, and you can run anywhere you like!
Please note, if you order a DRI-FIT, the shirts are running ONE SIZE SMALLER. If you are normally a large, you may want to consider ordering XL. This is the case for DRI-FIT only.
This event is brought to you by the Winter Haven Police Department and all of the proceeds raised will be donated to the Special Olympics Florida.
