Law Enforcement Torch Run® for Special Olympics April 22, 2014
Law enforcement officers from over 300 Florida agencies (police departments, sheriff’s offices, Florida Department of Corrections, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Agency, U.S. Customs, Air Force Police and Marine Patrol) all participate in the state-wide Torch Run to benefit the athletes of Special Olympics Florida. Each year, over 5,000 officers carry the torch on a 1500-mile relay through 66 counties in Florida. The Torch Run will be here in the City of Edgewood on April 22, 2014. This year it will start at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge (FOP) located at 5505 S. Hansel Avenue, Edgewood, Fl 32809. The run will start at 9am and head North on Hansel Avenue, turn at Kelsey Avenue and proceed South ending back at the F.O.P.
Funds are generated through contributions from individuals and businesses along the way and through sales of the popular Torch Run T-shirts and caps. Please join the City of Edgewood and the Edgewood Police Department on April 22, 2014 for this special event.
