2024 Law Enforcement Torch Run Guardian Games

Looking back at 2024 Games

What a fun day at Westgate for the 2024 Law Enforcement Torch Run Guardian Games presented by Sanderson Ford.

The event featured 64 teams competing in eight different events/stations throughout the Westgate Entertainment District.  Each unified team consisted of one Special Olympics Arizona athlete, one law enforcement officer, and two sponsor participants.  The goal is to develop a closer relationship between SOAZ athletes, law enforcement and Arizona businesses though this fun and unique format.

The event provides individuals the opportunity to have an interactive experience with SOAZ athletes in a fun, safe and competitive environment.  It allows SOAZ athletes to gain higher-level sports skills while experiencing meaningful inclusion by playing a valued role on a team, with the goal of changing people’s attitudes about people with disabilities while fostering lasting friendships.

Teams will competed in the following events – Phoenix Suns Basketball Challenge, Arizona Coyotes Street Hockey, Arizona Cardinals Football, Arizona Diamondbacks Home Run Derby, PXG Golf Drive, iHeart Shazam, LETR Experience, and CW7 Family Feud.
