Healthy Athletes Fit for Sports. Fit for Life. Supported by
Healthy Athletes is a program of health screenings and education for Special Olympics athletes. The program’s goal is to improve each athlete’s ability to train and compete in Special Olympics through better health and fitness. In Delaware, Healthy Athletes began with two components at the 2001 Summer Games – Opening Eyes (Vision) and Special Smiles (Dental). The program expanded to include two additional components, Healthy Hearing and Fit Feet, as well as five other wellness screenings. Each component of Healthy Athletes is administered by local volunteers with professional expertise in that discipline.
Visit Healthy Athletes at the 2011 Summer Games This year’s Summer Games will offer two health screenings and three health information components as part of the Healthy Athletes program.

THE SODE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND SODE STAFF WISH TO THANK DELAWARE LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR 25 YEARS OF DEDICATION, SERVICE AND LOYALTY TO THE THOUSANDS OF ATHLETES OF SPECIAL OLYMPICS DELAWARE.
All around the world, Special Olympics has a formidable and caring legion of protectors and supporters: the law enforcement community.
For 25 years Delaware Law Enforcement has hit the pavement in support of the athletes who train and compete in Special Olympics. Through their signature event - the Law Enforcement Torch Run - which has evolved into a threecounty, 160-mile relay-run across the state, law enforcement has opened the doors of understanding and acceptance while raising more than $3.3 million dollars to fuel Special Olympicsâ€™ growth and quality programming.
FACT: Delaware is the only state in the country that runs a lit 'Flame of Hope' the entire length of the state prior to its Summer Games.
In addition to the Torch Run, the Delaware Law Enforcement for Special Olympics (LESO) hosts several fundraising events throughout the year with the support of the following sponsors:
UD Student Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC)
DELAWARE LAW ENFORCEMENT TORCH RUN 2011 TORCH RUNNER Randall W. Lee Deputy State Fire Marshal Deputy State Fire Marshal Randall W. Lee is a 27-year veteran of Delaware law enforcement. He has served the last nine years as the Chief Deputy Fire Marshal in Sussex County (Operations Division). Fire Marshall Lee first became involved with Special Olympics in 1995 when he participated in the Lewes Polar Bear Plunge. The weather that year was the coldest on record with wind gusts at -20 degrees below zero. Fire Marshal Lee became involved in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics in the late 1990’s as a Torch Runner. Since that time, Randy has continued to increase his volunteer efforts for the Torch Run and Special Olympics Delaware (SODE). In addition, he continues to actively recruit and encourage other police officers to join in the year-round fund-raising and volunteer efforts of Delaware Law Enforcement for Special Olympics (LESO). Fire Marshal Lee has served as the Western Sussex Leg Coordinator for Delaware’s Torch Run for the past nine years. Fire Marshal Lee is the consummate “team player” and Torch Run leader. He has served Delaware’s Torch Run and Special Olympics movements tirelessly, and enthusiastically, over the last 15 years. Fire Marshal Lee truly epitomizes the typical “unsung hero” in Delaware’s Torch Run movement, volunteering countless hours to help raise funds and enhance public awareness on behalf of the Torch Run and Special Olympics. As the 2011 Delaware Torch Runner of the year, Fire Marshal Lee will have the unique honor and privilege of delivering the “Flame of Hope,” on behalf of all Delaware law enforcement, to the 2010 SODE Athlete of Year, Michael Bowe, for the lighting of the cauldron at the conclusion of the SODE Summer Games Opening Ceremonies on Friday, June 10 at the University of Delaware in Newark.
