The 2014 Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics will be passing through Findlay on Tuesday.
This year, more than 2,000 law enforcement officers will run or bike in one of six main arteries planned throughout the state as the torch makes its way to Columbus for Friday’s opening ceremonies at the State Summer Games at the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
The Torch Run is expected to arrive at the Ohio State Highway Patrol office in Findlay at 3 p.m. Tuesday and to the Blanchard Valley Center, 1700 E. Sandusky St., between 5 and 5:30 p.m.
The Hancock County Special Olympics will hold a celebration at Blanchard Valley Center, which will include music, a dunk tank, games, face painting and food. The event is free.
The Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest grassroots fundraiser for Special Olympics Ohio.
