Maplewood Police officers took part in the Law Enforcement Torch Run last week, to raise money for Special Olympics, the department reported on Twitter.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run® began 31 years ago in Kansas as a vision of Wichita, KS, Chief Richard LaMunyon, who wanted to give his officers an opportunity to participate in something positive. Today, the LETR is held in 50 states and 45 countries around the world. The event raises more than $55 million annually and recruits more than 90,000 law enforcement officers from all over the world.
It was an honor for @MaplewoodMOPD to participate in @SOMissouri Law Enforcement Torch Run today. Big thanks to the @WebsterGrovesPD @CityGlendaleMO Police Department and the Shrewsbury Police Department for running our leg with us. #torchrun #Maplewood #Specialolympics50 pic.twitter.com/gM6gqQ7OxW
