San Luis Regional Detention and Support Center's Story

How has being involved in the Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run impacted your life?

Being involved in the Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run is an opportunity to “join forces” with our brothers and sisters in the law enforcement community, while recognizing these truly special people.  In past, the staff at the San Luis Regional Detention and Support Center have had the pleasure of having a gentleman named Garrett join us on the run which made it all the more rewarding.  To see his broad smile is enlightening.

Is there a specific athlete that has had a significant impact? If yes, who is that athlete and how have they impacted your life?  

Haley and Garrett.  Haley ran with the staff of the San Luis Regional Detention and Support Center, Garrett road beside us.  This was Garrett’s 2nd year accompanying us.

In what ways have you been involved with LETR?

The staff at the San Luis Regional Detention and Support Center get involved yearly.  This year we had participants in a 5k run and then the Torch Run.

What would you say to people to get them more involved with LETR?  

Join us!  Our participation is growing annually; we started with just 3-4 participants in 2010 and have grown to over 25.
