First of all, I would like to congratulate ALL of the champions who have participated in this national event. I was at the Opening Ceremonies on June 15th, where law enforcement representatives and athletes from throughout the United States, who ran together for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, brought the Flame of Hope to light the cauldron at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. It was spectacular!

A little about what to expect at this year’s National Games:
For all you Glee fanatics and athletic supporters out there who love to learn about and support a good cause, Lauren Potter, of Glee’s Cheerio fame on Fox will be the Ambassador for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles, California, USA.
The games are scheduled to be held in July.
