What is Glow N Games?

Glow N Games is a fun family event like no other! This event combines the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a 5K glow in the dark run/walk, and family friendly games. All while raising money for Special Olympics Colorado!

5K Glow in the Dark Run/Walk!

Once the sun goes down, we turn on the lights and make the 5K course glow! Participants get glow powder, glow sticks, and are encouraged to wear fun outfits. Who will cross the crime scene tape finish line first?

What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics?

The MISSION of the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) is to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics worldwide. Special Olympics is a program that reaffirms our belief that with hope, love, and dedication, we can see achievement and self-worth realized by any individual. It is our belief that people with intellectual disabilities show the community at large the true meaning of sport and a pure joy towards life through their involvement in Special Olympics.
