Special Olympics torch heads to Greenwich

The annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Connecticut will take place this week as officers will carry the “Flame of Hope” through the towns and cities they serve.

The goal is to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics and inspire communities to accept and respect people of all abilities.

On Friday, June 6, Leg 10 runs through Greenwich to New Haven, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to Greenwich, on that day, the torch will be passing through Bridgeport, Darien, Fairfield, Milford, New Haven, Norwalk, Orange, Stamford, Stratford, West Haven and Westport.

More than 1,500 local law enforcement officers are expected to participate in the run and cover more than 530 miles for Special Olympics. Spectators are encouraged to show up and cheer on these officers as they pass by and donating in their honor at soct.org/torch.

The three-day run will conclude at Southern Connecticut State University Friday, June 6, at 7:15 p.m., when officers will run a final leg into Jess Dow Field on campus and be part of opening ceremonies for Special Olympics Connecticut’s Summer Games weekend, where more than 2,000 athletes are expected to compete at that event.
