It's #ThankfulThursday here in #LETR land, and we're honoring our LETR Gallup community! Last Saturday, deputies, officers, and firefighters heeded a call to help out our local Special Olympics New Mexico Gallup delegation with a softball scrimmage to help train for their upcoming Four Corners Invitational State Tournament. LETR agencies McKinley County Sheriff's Office, New Mexico State Police, and the Gallup Fire Department united to ensure the joy of sport for our SO families! We are #NewMexicoTrue!

It's #TorchRunTuesday! On July 23, LETR Otero County Prison Facility officers, friends, and family members---along with Otero County Sheriff's Office deputies---met at Yucca Heights Elementary School located in Chaparral, New Mexico to run their local torch run route in honor and in conjunction with our annual State Relay Relay Run for Special Olympics New Mexico back in June. This five mile Torch Run continued our efforts to raise funds and awareness for SONM athletes---culminating in the parking lot of the facility where organizers treated torch runners to “Hamburger/Bratwurst” fundraising sale. For the past 13 years Otero County Prison Facility hosted fundraisers to benefit New Mexico LETR. The event also featured local State Representative Willie Madrid from District 53 among other local dignitaries. Special thanks goes out to OCPF Warden Rick Martinez for his support! #NewMexicoTrue #SONM #NMLETR

"More Than Just a Run”
The Law Enforcement Torch Run® is “more than just a run”. Law Enforcement Torch Run® serves as an umbrella to various fund raising activities. These activities include:
• T-Shirt Sales – each year the Law Enforcement volunteers approve the design of a t-shirt that is sold as a fundraiser. T-shirts can be sold to co-workers, family, friends and at various torch run fund raising activities.
• “Tip-A-Cops” – Law Enforcement personnel serve as “celebrity” waiters at local restaurants and their “tips” are donated to Special Olympics.
• Pledges for Running – Prior to the actual torch run, participants get pledges from family, friends, co-workers and local businesses in support of their running with the torch through their community.
• Sponsorship – Local businesses and organizations donate money to be a sponsor and in return receive publicity and other incentives for their sponsorship. Depending on the amount donated, businesses and organizations can be a sponsor of a particular fund raising event, or for all torch run activities.
