2024 Alaska Law Enforcement Torch Run and Pledge Drive​

Special Olympics Alaska

Flames of hope will ignite throughout Alaska as the 2024 Alaska Law Enforcement Torch Run and Pledge Drive takes place simultaneously in 13 communities across the state. The run starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 18 when a cadre of law enforcement members lead the 5K family fun run in the following communities: Anchorage, Central Peninsula, Craig, Delta Junction, Homer, Juneau, Kodiak, Nome, Seward, Sitka, Valdez, Ketchikan, Mat-Su Valley, and Tanana Valley. It is expected to be the largest simultaneous multi-community running event held in Alaska this year, with a goal of raising $150,000 for Special Olympics Alaska communities.


Orchestrated by the Alaska Law Enforcement community, the Torch Run and Pledge Drive is open to both law enforcement officers and the general public. Walkers, runners, joggers, strollers and rollerblades are welcome to participate in this family fun run both in-person or virtually, and can share their photos & videos online. Participants are encouraged to obtain pledges from co-workers, neighbors, family members and others, as all the funds raised within the community stay within the local community to help support sports training and competition.
