Law Enforcement Torch Run benefits Special Olympics Southern California

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The Chula Vista Police Dept. will serve as the Torch Run kick-off agency this year on Oct. 25 from 9:30 – 10 a.m.

The entirety of the Troch Run will last through Nov. 11, and hundreds of law enforcement officials will carry the Flame of Hope, including policemen and women from three counties and 65 Southern California communities. The event functions to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Southern California.

After a two-year hiatus, the Torch Run is returning, and the lighting of the torch will take place at Chula Vista Police Department Headquarters on October 25th from 9:30 AM – 10:00 AM.

The event is the largest public awareness and grass roots fundraiser for the Special Olympics. KUSI’s Ed Lenderman went live with members from the Chula Vista Police Dept. to talk about the event.
