Again this year, on June 20, 2023, Hudson Police will participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics. They will carry the Torch starting at Oak & Embers on SR 91, heading south through the downtown to Norton Road. The estimated start time at Oak & Embers is 3:30 pm. Line up along the entire torch route and cheer on our HPD and the Special Olympians as they run through town.
The Torch Run® is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass-roots fundraiser for Special Olympics. Known as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes carry the Flame of Hope into the Opening Ceremony of local competitions, and into Special Olympics State, Provincial, National, Regional and World Games. Annually, more than 100,000 dedicated and compassionate law enforcement members carry the “Flame of Hope,” symbolizing courage and celebration of diversity uniting communities around the globe.
