New Mexico Law Enforcement Torch Run (NMLETR)
State Relay Run Background
Every year leading up to the Special Olympics New Mexico State Summer Games competition, NMLETR law enforcement officers participate in a statewide relay run- covering 1,600 miles around New Mexico- throughout the month of May. The Statewide Relay Run culminates in the officers running in the Flame of Hope torch into State Summer Games Opening Ceremonies in Albuquerque.
Due to the coronavirus, the State Summer Games was cancelled this year, and NMLETR has created the Modified State Relay Run to honor and support Special Olympics athletes through physically distanced running and fundraising. Keep reading for more info.
