LETR Kickoff Registration

Over 300 law enforcement personnel from Illinois attended the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run Kick Off conference on Friday, January 31 at the Doubletree Hilton in Bloomington. 

There was much to celebrate as LETR Assistant Director Pat Hoey announced that a record $5.3 million dollars was raised for Special Olympics Illinois in 2019!  Because of your commitment, Special Olympics will continue to provide quality programs to more than 23,000 individuals who train and compete, year round and free of charge in Illinois.   

Big thanks to the many people who made the event possible:  Bloomington Police Department Honor Guard, speakers Daniel Smrokowski, Kaylee McLaughlin, C.J. & Madison Devine, Detective Nikki Bruno, Coach Chad Letterle and his amazing power lifting team.  Keynote speaker Wayne Messmer gave a truly powerful testimonial and inspired everyone in the room!  On behalf of Special Olympics Illinois, thank you for being a part of the Kick Off conference.
