DETAILS

Our program year runs January 1st – December 31st. Each year in our first quarter, LETR officers, sponsors, and SONM athletes come together to “celebrate” (and recognize) the accomplishments of our officers and agencies for the past year, and “kick off” the current year of raising funds and awareness for Special Olympics. This year, LETR is hosting training sessions exploring the kinds of interactions of our public safety officers and individuals with intellectual disabilities have outside of Special Olympics activities and the role it has on building more inclusive communities.
