Special Olympics Florida Torch Run

Light The Way For Inclusion


We are proud to be guardians of the torch for Special Olympics Florida. We are also proud of the many athletes who showcase the true meaning of inclusion on and off the field – each and every day. We invite you to #lightthetorch this year, and support athletes across the state. Just visit any Publix Super Market anytime January 11-22 and make a donation when you check out. Whether it’s $1, $3, $5, or any amount you choose, you’ll receive your own torch with more than $20 in coupon savings. Most importantly, your support will help people with intellectual disabilities in Florida achieve their dreams!
