This year's Arizona Torch Run began in seven locations across the state starting on May 2nd through May 7th, 2015.
These seven flames were carried throughout Arizona, culminating with the lighting of the torch at the Special Olympics Summer Games.
Last year, there were over 3,898 law enforcement personnel and 106 agencies including the bordering country of Mexico’s Police Department who participanted in the 7 legs of the Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run week. There were individuals who ran, walked, cycled and even kayaked their portion of the run. Many Special Olympics athletes joined law enforcement in their part of the run along with various schools and businesses throughout the state who cheered on their local law enforcement supporting their community.
