What is the Law Enforcement Torch Run?

The Law Enforcement Torch Run precedes the Special Olympics Nebraska State Summer Games and involves law enforcement officers from various agencies all across the state running the "Flame of Hope" throughout the state for one week to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Nebraska and the organization's 5,000 intellectually disabled athletes. During Torch Run Week ceremonies are held in many communities in Nebraska. The ceremonies consist of local law enforcement with Special Olympics athletes, families, volunteers and supporters running the Torch in their communities. The Torch Run is a great way to showcase the partnership between law enforcement and Special Olympics and to spotlight the talents and achievements of local athletes as they get ready to compete at Summer Games.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Scotts Bluff National Monument parking lot, run begins at 10:30, a 10k through Gering and Scottsbluff, ending at Frank Park. Lunch provided by RUNZA and the Special Olympics Families.
