Special Olympics is an international organization that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance, and inclusion of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The Law Enforcement Torch Run is an event in which law enforcement agencies from around the state participate in an actual running event to carry the “Flame of Hope” to the Opening Ceremonies of the Special Olympics Texas Summer Games in Arlington. The Galveston Police Department has a history of promoting awareness and raising funds for the Special Olympics Texas. For more information on Special Olympics Texas and the Law Enforcement Torch run go to www.sotx.org or contact Lieutenant Michael Gray with the Galveston Police Department at 409-765-3659.
