CCSO members and Special Olympics athletes participated in the 30th annual Law Enforcement Special Olympics Torch Run on Wednesday. The 15.2 mile run started off at the Collier County Government Center and finished at the Collier/ Lee County line after runners handed off the “Torch of Hope.” The Torch Run is held every spring to raise support for the Florida Special Olympics.
