Hayward PD participates in 2023 Law Enforcement Torch Run

June 27, 2023

The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch (LETR) run is to support Special Olympics through fundraising and public awareness efforts while enhancing the quality of life for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

Members of Hayward PD participated in this year’s 40th anniversary of the LETR and ran 4.5 miles through Hayward after receiving the torch from our partners at BART PD. At the conclusion of the run, the torch was passed to our neighbors at Union City PD who then continued with their leg of the race.

We are proud to be part of such an amazing fundraiser each year. And to those who came out and gave cheers of encouragement to our runners, we say, “thank you!”
