Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics

Hernando County, Florida-- Local law enforcement officers ask for your support as they participate in the annual Torch Run for Special Olympics on Monday, April 15.

Hernando County is one of 66 in Florida to participate in this event each year. Those 66 counties add up to more than 5,000 officers from over 300 agencies- all running and "carrying the torch" on a 1500 mile relay to benefit the athletes of the Special Olympics

This year, Hernando's stent of the relay will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Brooksville. Officers will run from Tom Varn Park to the historic courthouse downtown, and then back to the park.

You're encouraged to show your support and line the course to cheer them on! Torch Run t-shirts and baseball caps will be available for sale to support the event.
