Special Olympics

Torch Run


Every year, citizens and business organizations are asked to support the Western Springs police officers who join officers from every state to carry the Special Olympics flame. Thanks to your support of the Torch Run, 1 million children can continue to participate in year-round sports training.

Support the Special Olympics


Residents can help the department help the Special Olympians experience skill, courage, sharing, and joy by adopting a cop and making a donation to the Torch Run. One hundred percent of all donations go to Special Olympics. Adopt a Cop forms are available at the Police Department.

The Police Department also sells hats, t-shirts, and pins to support the Special Olympics.
