About Torch Run


The Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics Virginia is divided into 18 regions. Regions 1-13 and Region 18 are geographically divided; Region 14 encompasses the Virginia State Police and Regions 15-17 encompass the Virginia Department of Corrections. Each region has a region director, who is responsible for all aspects of the Torch Run in their geographic region, and a liaison.

 

Additionally, there are four Special Olympics Virginia staff members who help facilitate the Torch Run activities in the 18 regions. See below for region director and liaison contacts, as well as the Special Olympics Virginia staff contacts and the regions with which they work.

 

You can also view the Torch Run Executive Council contacts or the complete Special Olympics Virginia staff directory.
