Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics

Starting on April 28, 2014, law enforcement officers throughout the state will once again be participating in the Wyoming Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics. Numerous officers participate every year as the torch makes its way across the State of Wyoming by foot or bike to be presented on May 1st at the Special Olympics Summer Games, this year hosted by Laramie. This is the single largest fundraiser for the Special Olympics.

The goal of the Law Enforcement Torch Run is to raise public awareness of the Special Olympics and to raise funds to assist area athletes in arriving and participating in this great event. These funds help pay the expenses of athletes travelling to and staying at events.

On April 28th, 2014, officers from the Gillette Police Department, Campbell County Sheriff's Department, and other local agencies will participate in the first leg of the Torch Run. Starting at 1:00 p.m., officers from local law enforcement agencies will carry the Flame of Hope through the City of Gillette. The route will begin at the Port of Entry on Second Street, travel west to the intersection of Hwy 14/16 and Skyline, travel back east to Hwy 59, then proceed south to Dalby Park. The total distance we plan to run this year is just over 6.5 miles. Not only will officers be running, but also local Special Olympics Athletes.
