Tip-A-Cop to Support the Athletes

The annual Claim Jumper Tip-A-Cop is less than a month away. Tuesday, April 4 in Burbank and Thursday, April 6 at all other locations, diners can enjoy a delicious meal and be waited on by officers, all to support Special Olympics. Come meet our athletes, and shake hands with our law enforcement partners, and enjoy a fun night out.

Thank you to Claim Jumper for the continued partnership and allowing Special Olympics Southern California the ability to showcase our programs.

Running with the Flame of Hope at World Games

The El Cajon floor hockey team will not be the only representatives at the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria on March 14-25.

Cmdr. Mark McCorkle of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and Lt. Bill Proll of the San Luis Obispo Police Department will be among the proud law enforcement making the trip and carrying the Flame of Hope.

Support Cmdr. Mark McCorkle
Mark was one of 100 police officers from around the world selected. He has already exceeded his fundraising goal and is currently up to $8,051.

Support Lt. Bill Proll
Bill, a Torch Run participant for more than 25 years, will be among 11 team leaders at World Games. His contributions include doubling annual revenue for San Luis Obispo County law enforcement to more than $130,000 raised in 2016.

The Route to Summer Games

Law enforcement officers are breaking in new sneakers and preparing the routes for the LETR Final Leg. Officers will run with the Flame of Hope through three routes to bring awareness and support to our biggest sporting event of the year – Summer Games.

The three Torch Run Final leg routes are:

Tuesday, May 30 – Southern Route begins in San Diego County
Monday, June 5 – Northern Route begins in San Luis Obispo County
Monday, June 5 – Central Route begins in Los Angeles County

Gather your family, friends, and co-workers, and come out to cheer on the officers and athletes as they carry the torch to Summer Games Opening Ceremony.


An Obstacle of EPIC Proportions

Climb, lift, push, jump and crawl your way through more than 25 EPIC obstacle challenges on a winding course less than 2 miles long on April 23 in Los Angeles. Each obstacle has varying difficulties, so all fitness levels are welcome. Special Olympics Southern California will receive 18 percent of proceeds.



A huge thank you and shout out to all the law enforcement officers who attended the various Law Enforcement Torch Run 2017 Kick-offs to hear about our exciting plans for this year.

Each region has some unique events and plans to expand our law enforcement partnership. We are also engaging all Department of Corrections facilities in our footprint.
