Law Enforcement Torch Run Merchandise Order Form

Departments are encouraged to order Torch Run merchandise to sell as part of their 2019 fundraising efforts. No cash is required up front when ordering merchandise. Special Olympics Illinois requires a minimum donation of $20 per T-shirt, $15 per hat and $5 per pin. 

While there is no cost to your department when ordering merchandise there is a cost to our LETR program. Due to this, merchandise distribution will be tracked to help us avoid an excess inventory at the end of the year. If needed, departments may order additional merchandise throughout the year.

This year, LETR is unveiling the new and improved way of securing merchandise through a new partnership with Will Enterprises. To secure the merchandise you would like to sell throughout the year, please visit the link below!
