A Virtual Torch Run Completed For Special Olympics

by Jackson Hole Radio News

The Law Enforcement Torch Run to Benefit Special Olympics Wyoming has historically conducted runs leading up to the Special Olympics Wyoming State Summer Games. The pandemic forced the cancellation of Summer Games but not the enthusiasm and support of the Law Enforcement Community for the program; thus the creation of the first ever virtual run. Law Enforcement personnel, Special Olympics athletes, family and friends participated by walking or running outside or on a treadmill, exercising on an elliptical or cycling. Participants tracked their miles, took pictures and recorded videos to post their efforts to the Wyoming Law Enforcement Torch Run Facebook page.
