Partner Highlight : LETR 40 years and Chief Terry Wright 

Congratulations to Terry Wright who retired this month as Chief of Police in Tillamook, Oregon after 40 years in Law Enforcement. Chief Wright was a member of the Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police where he was a driving force behind Oregon Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. Thank you, Chief, for your support of Special Olympics Oregon through the years and we wish you much-deserved relaxation in your retirement!  

This year the LETR community celebrates its 40th Anniversary! The partnership between Special Olympics Oregon and Law Enforcement Torch Run continues to be such an important part of our mission.  The LETR volunteers, event participants, fundraisers and supporters are such a driving force in ensuring athletes experience a life of inclusion and connection to their communities.  The bond officers and athletes have is so authentic and we look forward to seeing them in full uniform placing medals around athletes necks again soon. 

We are so thankful for the past 40 years of LETR and are so excited to see what the next 40 years has in store for our community!
