Law Enforcement Torch Run Kick-Off


COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– Hundreds of men and women from 60 law enforcement agencies are gathering on the north steps of the South Carolina Statehouse on Tuesday, January 26 at 11:00 a.m. This is for the statewide kick-off of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics South Carolina.

This is law enforcement’s 30th year of support. At the event, officers will also announce how much they raised for athletic programs in 2015 and their anticipated goal for 2016.

Throughout the year, officers and volunteers sit on roof tops of doughnut shops, wait tables, organize and participate in Polar Plunges and sports tournaments.  This is all in the name of Special Olympics to support children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
