As Special Olympics PEI programs return to a focus of moving forward with community, provincial, maritime, national and international games, the need for funding grows as well.” - Provincial Torch Run Chair, Constable Kristi MacKay- Charlottetown Police Services - School Resource Officer for Charlottetown Rural High School

The PEI Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics PEI (PEI LETR) was established in 1993. Its mission is to increase awareness & raise funds for the Special Olympics movement across PEI. Many Law enforcement agencies have been represented over the years on this committee. Agencies that have been involved are: Atlantic Police Academy, Charlottetown Police Services, Dept. of Fisheries & Oceans, Highway Safety, Kensington Police Services, Parks Canada, PEI Conservation, PEI Corrections, PEI Youth & Justice Services, RCMP, Sheriff Services of Prince Edward Island, Summerside Police Services and UPEI Security Services.

The values of our member agencies are like the characteristics of the SOPEI athletes they support, they are Teamwork, Passion, Commitment, Caring, Pride and Courage. Since its inception, PEI LETR has raised over $300 thousand dollars for local Special Olympics PEI programs and changed attitudes of inclusion locally.
