Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run

Law Enforcement Torch Run begins in Hamburg to Benefit Special Olympics

"As law enforcement officers we help out those in need and we're always there to help others and there's no better way to do that than through special olympics".

A nice-sized contingent of law officers and Bitterroot Special Olympians paraded along one lane of United States 93 through Hamilton Saturday as part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run to support the Summer Special Olympics.

"It's just an awesome feeling getting to meet more athletes from across the state and other law enforcement officers, and they always have such a great group of people that we go with", school resource officer Michelle Paulsen said.

Local athletes competing in the Special Olympics were also present. The Law Enforcement Torch Run will take place on Wednesday, May 16th, starting at noon and begin at Hamburg Police Department and travel more than 4 miles throughout Hamburg, passing by 4 different schools including Hamburg Middle, Union Pleasant, St. Peter and Paul and Charlotte Avenue Elementary to end back at Hamburg Police Department.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Special Olympics South Dakota, and the 30th year that the torch run has been held across the state.
