Posted

The Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run will be June 1 and citizens are invited to join in the celebration.

Members of the Arvada Police Department, along with those from surrounding agencies including Westminster, Jefferson County, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood, will run the 13.1 miles from 88th and Wadsworth to the Colorado State Capitol.

The route will run south on Wadsworth to Colfax Avenue, then East on Colfax to the Colorado State Capitol. Residents, businesses and neighbors are invited to come out and cheer along the race route.

Estimated times at various locations are:

8:30 a.m. - 64th & Wadsworth

8:55 a.m. - I-70 & Wadsworth

9:30 a.m. - Colfax & Wadsworth

10:05 a.m. - Federal and Colfax

10:30 a.m. - Arrive at the State Capitol

Upon arrival at the State Capitol, agencies from across the state will gather for the Opening Ceremonies of the Colorado Special Olympics.

Each year, local law enforcement agencies gather as a community to raise awareness and money for Colorado Special Olympics with the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The mission of Special Olympics Colorado is to provide year-round training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy. While sharing their gifts and skills, they experience friendship with other Special Olympics athletes and their families.
