Be a Champion for Inclusion!

Join hundreds of officers from local, county, state, federal, and military agencies who will go above the normal call of duty and run in the 2023 Torch Run for Special Olympics Southern California.

We will be running and walking leading up to the 2023 Special Olympics Southern California Summer Games in June promoting acceptance and inclusion in Southern California communities and raising awareness and funds for the athletes of Special Olympics Southern California.
