USA Games Flame of Hope Final Leg stops in Philadelphia

Yesterday, we had the honor of welcoming the Special Olympics USA Games Flame of Hope to Philadelphia as part of its journey from Chicago to Orlando on the 2022 Law Enforcement Torch Run Final Leg!

We were truly blown away by the pageantry of the Flame making its way up the historic steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and weaving through the streets of Fairmount to help energize our athletes for the upcoming competition in Florida. Two Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes, David Miller & Trevor Ciampoli, along with members of the Philadelphia Police Department ran the leg with the national LETR team!

We also want to extend a special thank you to our incredible law enforcement partners from across the state for their unbelievable support as well as the City of Philadelphia Government, Councilmember Derek Green, School District of Philadelphia, Bank of America, City of Philadelphia Office of the City Representative, Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, PHILADELPHIA250 and our Cities of Inclusion Board for making yesterday so wonderful.
