NEW JERSEY – Law enforcement officers on Friday, June 11 will prove that the “Flame of Hope” is
alive in well in the Garden State.

During the 38th annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey, more than 3,000 officers take to the streets of their local communities, split up into 26 separate legs with some starting as early as 4:45 a.m., and run to raise awareness for Special Olympics New Jersey.

The Annual Torch Run typically precedes Special Olympics New Jersey’s Summer Games at The College of New Jersey in June. However, due to COVID-19 cancellations and postponements, the Torch Run will be held as a standalone event.

Spectators are invited to watch and cheer as the flame makes its way through local communities across New Jersey. For maps or more information, visit NJTorchRun.org.

“Law enforcement officers have been serving Special Olympics New Jersey athletes for over 38 years,” says Chief Robert Belfiore, Retired Deputy Chief of the Port Authority of NY/NJ and Director of the New Jersey Torch Run. “As the Director of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, I am privileged to work with such a resilient group of individuals. The Annual Torch Run is stronger than ever thanks to these dedicated men and women of law enforcement, and we will continue to come together as a community in support of the Special Olympics New Jersey mission.”

The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey is recognized as a leader in fundraising among the many programs around the globe, and in 2020 raised more than $3.6 million for the athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey.

“From training to competition, health resources to leadership opportunities, Special Olympics New Jersey provides all its programs completely free of charge to our community,” says Jason Schubert, Senior Director of LETR Initiatives for Special Olympics New Jersey. “And for over 38 years of Special Olympics New Jersey history, law enforcement officers have been supporting these initiatives and raising millions of dollars annually for our athletes.”

In 1982, the late Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Officer Steven Vitale was asked to take photos at a local Special Olympics competition in New Jersey. He was so moved by the determination exhibited by the athletes that he asked other police officers to volunteer at the Summer Games. In 1984, the first New Jersey Torch Run was conceived to raise funds and public awareness for the Special Olympics New Jersey program. The course ran from Liberty State Park in Jersey City to Rutgers Stadium in New Brunswick, through eight towns, covering 43 miles and raising $7,000. In each succeeding year, the dollar amount became greater and the number of volunteers increased substantially.

 

Driven by the willingness of the New Jersey Law Enforcement officers to do more, the Law Enforcement Torch Run began to expand over the years. New fundraising events and initiatives were created and held throughout the Garden State to promote the Special Olympics movement. With over $4 million raised annually by more than 3,000 officers through local and statewide events, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey has been recognized in the world for many years as one of the top grassroots fundraising organizations for Special Olympics. Fundraising events that are conducted year-round in New Jersey include an Adopt-a-Cop campaign for the annual Torch Run, three Polar Bear Plunges, the Lincoln Tunnel Challenge 5K, the United Airlines Plane Pull and golf outings to name a few. In addition to fundraising, Law Enforcement officers volunteer at athlete competitions and events year-round, while serving as ambassadors in local communities.

On Friday, June 11th, more than 3,000 officers will take to the streets of their local communities on one of 26 separate routes to help carry the "Flame of Hope" a distance of nearly 750 miles throughout the Garden State to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics New Jersey.

Special Olympics New Jersey provides year-round sports training, competition, leadership opportunities and health screenings to more than 26,000 athletes. All of these programs and services are always completely FREE thanks to fundraising events like the Law Enforcement Torch Run.

***************************************************************

The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey is a statewide campaign coordinated and managed by all divisions of Law Enforcement officers and officials from throughout the State of New Jersey. Through their efforts, events are conducted year round by the law enforcement community to raise funds for the athletes of Special Olympics New Jersey. In addition to fundraising, law enforcement volunteers at athletic events year round while serving as ambassadors in local communities.

In 1982, the late Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Officer Steven Vitale was asked to take photos at a local Special Olympics competition in New Jersey. He was so moved by the determination exhibited by the athletes that he asked other police officers to volunteer at the Summer Games. In 1984, the first New Jersey Torch Run was conceived to raise funds and public awareness for the Special Olympics New Jersey program. The course ran from Liberty State Park in Jersey City to Rutgers Stadium in New Brunswick through eight towns covering 43 miles and raising $7,000. In each succeeding year, the dollar amount became greater and the number of volunteers increased substantially. In 2019, over $4.2 million was raised by more than 3,000 officers through local and statewide events including the Law Enforcement Torch Run as part of the annual Summer Games in June.

NJ has been at the forefront of the Torch Run movement since 1984 when we became the 1st state wide Torch Run for Special Olympics.

The NJLETR is run by a State Committee of dedicated current and retired law enforcement officers and civilian personnel that coordinate all aspects of the events from origination to the fruition. Working along side of Special Olympics NJ, they have been able to maintain a level of awareness and funding that keeps NJLETR on top.

2020 nj torch run

It might have flown under the radar compared to previous years, but even in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics New Jersey did happen in 2020, keeping alive a streak that dates back to 1984.

While in-person Special Olympics competition is returning this year, it will not be headquartered at The College of New Jersey, meaning there will be no opening ceremony Friday night.

In turn, that means the run is also not going to culminate at TCNJ, but rather will be a point-to-point event connecting its dozens of different routes.

Still, Chief Robert Belfiore, LETR director and retired Deputy Chief of the Port Authority of NY/NJ, expects the Torch Run to play its part in the nearly $4 million raised annually by New Jersey law enforcement for the Special Olympics.

"We raise enough money so every athlete can participate free of charge," Belfiore said. “No family member has to put any money into what our athletes do."

Not every state can say that, according to Belfiore.

And to illustrate that point, Belfiore said New Jersey was the only state to proceed with its Torch Run at any point last year.

Things are almost back to normal for 2021, with the various routes covering 750 miles in total and involving more than 3,000 officers.

But organizers and participants will be missing that final moment of celebration, surrounded by the athletes and thousands of spectators.

"It stops and it's over. There's no coming down to the college, there's no opening ceremonies, there's no police officers high-fiving athletes. That's all out this year,” Belfiore said.
