The Five-O 5K honors all men and women in uniform who dedicate their lives in making Houston safe. This run celebrates and appreciates all the dedication and support that Law Enforcement Torch Run officers have to keep the Flame of Hope burning for Special Olympics Texas for 50 years. As we run 3.1 miles we honor all of the Law Enforcement Torch Run members who are no longer with us, such as our beloved Sergeant Paul Weido and Officer Marco Zarate.

Join us as we run with our LETR group and thank them for raising over $1 million per year to fund athletic programs for over 60,000 participating Texas athletes with intellectual disabilities. Of every dollar raised, 92¢ goes directly to programs for Special Olympics Texas athletes. Thank you for your support. Together we promote dignity, equality and opportunity for all people.
