Haysville, Kan.- It is expected that 1,150 officers from over 97 agencies will carry the “Flame of Hope” throughout 52 counties in Kansas as they travel to the annual Special Olympics Summer Games held in Wichita. The Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) is a series of statewide runs which will travel approximately 1,276 miles throughout the state. Law Enforcement Officers, along with Dustin Gunter, member of Royal Valley Panthers Special Olympics in Hoyt, Most Inspirational Athlete of 2015, will light the cauldron to officially open the Summer Games in front of over 3,000 athletes, coaches and fans of Special Olympics Kansas on June 3rd.
Locally, the Haysville leg of the Torch Run will be held Wednesday, June 1st. The run will start at 1:00 pm and end approximately 2:00 p.m. Additional information on the local route can be obtained from Justin Jacks at 316.529.5912. Run route by the Haysville Police Department will be:
1300 hours Start Haysville West Middle School parking lot (1956 W Grand Ave)
Travel east on Grand Ave and past South Seneca St
1400 hours End Haysville Activity Center, 7150 S Broadway (in parking lot)
The public is encouraged to step outside their business or home and encourage the officers as they run. Celebrating their 35th anniversary, the Law Enforcement Torch Run began in Wichita, Kansas in 1981 with six runners and has grown to an international program involving thousands of Law Enforcement personnel, raising millions of dollars annually to benefit Special Olympics programs in the United States and abroad.
The Torch Run is the largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics Kansas. Officers volunteer hundreds of hours each year and in 2015 raised $543,582.96 in support of Special Olympics Kansas programs. This remarkable feat was accomplished by holding events and fundraising through the torch run, special event fundraisers (i.e. Polar Plunge, Truck Convoy), sponsorships and donations.

Haysville has been recognized for 16 years of participation in the Tree City USA program. The Tree City USA program is sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service and the National Association of State Foresters and encourages cities to make the planting and care of trees a priority. Approximately 100 cities in Kansas participate in the program.
Haysville achieves Tree City USA recognition each year by meeting the program’s four requirements: a tree board or department, a tree-care ordinance, an annual community forestry budget of at least $2 per capita and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation.
As part of the recognition program, the Haysville Park Board received a special flag commemorating 16 years of participation. It flies below the Kansas state flag at PRIDE Park.
Although Arbor Day is nationally recognized on the last Friday in April, Haysville’s Arbor Day ceremonies occur on or around May 3rd, in honor of the anniversary of the 1999 tornado that devastated the city. The Haysville Park Board has planted 21 trees during Arbor Day ceremonies over the last 15 years.
This year’s Arbor Day celebration will take place at the W. W. Hays Historic Village, where three trees will be planted on Tuesday, May 3rd at 5:15 p.m. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
