The City of Milton's fundraising efforts for the Special Olympics of Georgia's Law Enforcement Torch Run pay off May 19 when the city's finest will actually carry the Flame of Hope.
The Torch Run is a 1,000 mile, two-week torch relay to pass the Special Olympics Georgia "Flame of Hope" across the state. All of the 11 relays converge at Emory University (Atlanta) during the State Summer Games Opening Ceremony.
The Torch Run culminates at the State Summer Games as officers enter the Opening Ceremony with the Olympic Torch - the Flame of Hope. The Torch is passed to a Special Olympics athlete who lights the Olympic cauldron signifying "Let the games begin!"
The Torch Run route is still being finalized. For more information, click here.
