Support SOSC for the 2023 World Games Final Leg

In January 2023, the Law Enforcement Torch Run Final Leg team for the 2023 Special Olympics World Games are participating in a very chilling event, the Blue Lake Leap. This event, held in Kazan, Russia, will benefit Special Olympics and feature over 100 law enforcement officers from 24 countries. Law enforcement officers around the world volunteer their time year-round with the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics and participate in some pretty crazy fun(d) raising events. This event, tops them all, a very chilling Polar Plunge in Kazan, Russia. We will cool down with a very frigid dip Blue Lake in the middle of winter….all to raise money in support of the athletes of Special Olympics. The water may be cold (actually frigid!) but this event will warm our hearts knowing the support that the Special Olympics athletes will receive as a result of our efforts!

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.
