Appointed by Governor Mark R. Warner in October 2003, Col. Flaherty has been a supporter of the Virginia Law Enforcement Torch Run for more than 12 years. Previously, he's served as a Region Director, and has participated in the Torch Run leading up to Summer Games each June.
Col. Flaherty began his distinguished law enforcement career with the Virginia State Police in October 1975. We welcome him as the 2013 State Chair and look forward to the months to come.
The Virginia Law Enforcement Torch Run will host a statewide raffle featuring a 2013 Harley Davidson Street Glide Motorcycle. The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office coordinates the raffle and helps ensure that tickets are sold at several large events like NASCAR races and Harley Davidson Open Houses. $20 tickets for the motorcycle will sold throughout the year until the winner is drawn Sept. 14. Find out more details on our raffle page.
What started as a flicker 32 years ago has grown into a roaring flame of support and stability for Special Olympics athletes worldwide. Join us as we officially light the “Flame of Hope” at the Torch Run Kick-Off Ceremony, May 23 at noon at the SunTrust Center in downtown Richmond. We’ll also celebrate the fundraising efforts of the more than 2,000 officers involved in the Torch Run.
Then, beginning June 1 in Bristol, officers from across the Commonwealth will run the Flame more than 1,900 miles, from every corner of the state, as they prepare to officially open Summer Games, June 7-8 in Richmond. To see if they're running near you, visit our Routes page; to be part of Summer Games, visit www.volunteer2cheer.com.
