The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest grassroots fundraising and awareness vehicle for Special Olympics. Since its inception, the Law Enforcement Torch Run has raised over one billion dollars for Special Olympics. The Vermont Torch Run started on Tuesday, June 18, and for three days, law enforcement officers (State and Federal), fire departments, correctional officers, and other first responders carried the Special Olympics’ Flame of Hope across the state to herald the coming of the Summer Games. This was the first Summer Games since 2019, and approximately 346 athletes competed in basketball and bocce.

The South Burlington leg was held on Thursday, June 20th and experienced a delay due to thunderstorms. Members of the South Burlington Police, VTANG Security Forces, Howard Community Outreach, and South Burlington Fire Department, with Chittenden athlete Joey Caruso, carried the torch along Williston Road from the Police Department to the Windjammer.
