Join us as we take our torch run virtual for 2020 and run across CT in support of Special Olympics Connecticut athletes who will be competing at home and on the playing field this Fall Sports season. 

It is our goal here at Special Olympics Connecticut to provide quality, year-round sports training and athletic competition to thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities.  In addition to putting Games and competitions on hold, COVID-19 has forced a number SOCT's in-person fundraisers to be cancelled. As a non-profit that relies heavily on fundraising events to secure the funds needed to deliver crucial programming, your support is needed now more than ever. Your support will help SOCT continue to deliver creative, mission-driven programming to our athletes, that promotes physical and emotional health, while bringing athletes out of social isolation and into active, inclusive communities.  SOCT continues to regularly engage with athletes virtually through social media, health screenings, fitness challenges, web calls, and more.  


Officers and other participants will keep track of their workout mileage and then log their mileage on the below google form. Our hope is to achieve the goal of 200,200 total miles in the year 2020. 

During these challenging times, we will show the world that the Connecticut Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics are true Guardians of the Flame!

Use Charity Miles, FitBit, MapMyRun or any of your favorite activity trackers to track your mileage. Log those miles with us by clicking the hyperlink below to track, log and share your miles with us!
