Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Comes to Summit County

The 2013 Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run Presented by The Kroger Company will take place June 23 – 28th across Ohio.  The officers will carry the “Flame of Hope” through over 150 communities, creating awareness of Special Olympics and raising funds for the program.  The Torch Run culminates in the Final Leg coming into Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium to pass the “Flame of Hope” to the Special Olympics athletes and signifies the official start to the Summer Games.
There are five main routes which originate in Athens, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Marietta, and Toledo and travel to Columbus. In addition there are several community satellite legs throughout the state as well. The Final Leg brings together officers from all parts of the state to carry the torch to the Opening Ceremonies of the State Summer Games.  The Final Leg will leave the State Highway Patrol Academy at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 28 and participants will run with the torch 3.2 miles to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
