2022 Torch Run Kickoff Ceremony at the Pentagon

The pandemic may have kept us from gathering to celebrate each other last year, but it surely didn't stop our amazing law enforcement supporters from showing Virginia's athletes some love along the way.

This year, we kicked off the annual Torch Run at the Pentagon by presenting the Unsung Hero and Hall of Fame awards for 2021 and 2022.

Congratulations to the 2021 and 2022 recipients!

Unsung Heroes 2021
Lt. Harrell has built several friendships with many Special Olympics athletes over the years and is a great role model and positive influence to many.
After COVID struck and many events were canceled, Lt. Lowery kept his commitment to his local Area 26 bocce athletes and held virtual meetings every other week, keeping the bond with his team and encouraging them to stay in shape and be safe.
Once she relocated from the bustling northern Virginia area to the southwest region, it wasn't long before she had her new locale actively involved. Luckily for Special Olympics, Laura shows no signs of slowing down, as she will be representing Team Virginia at the 2023 World Games in Berlin.

Unsung Heroes 2022
When Sgt. Wallace attended the International Torch Run Conference in Denver, he was ultimately inspired and motivated to expand his fundraising imagination and support of Special Olympics Virginia.
Sgt. Fadorick has been very active with Torch Run and Special Olympics for several years and is enthusiastic about getting people involved in every possible event.

Hall of Fame 2022

His hard work, leadership skills, enthusiasm, love of competition, and willingness to learn, have helped him thrive with Torch Run.
