Officials Take Part In Torch Run

Posted: Updated:
Law enforcement agencies hit the streets today. But they weren't chasing down criminals; they were raising awareness for Special Olympics.

Officers from a variety of law enforcement agencies participated in the annual Torch Run today in Bismarck. It takes place nationwide before the Special Olympics summer games. The Bismarck event was a 5K, but other North Dakota cities had longer runs. Some people even ran from Grand Forks to Fargo.

"Basically the run is to raise awareness for the Special Olympics program, not only in North Dakota but in the U.S. and across the entire world. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the character of choice for law enforcement across the U.S. so, it's a good deal," says Kevin Arthaud of the Bismarck Transition Center.

The North Dakota summer games take place this weekend in Fargo.
