On Friday, May 18th, 2012, officers from local law enforcement agencies within Hamilton County will take part in a county-wide Torch Run to support Special Olympics. Special Olympic athletes from Hamilton County and around the state will be participating in this year’s Special Olympics Summer Games in Terre Haute, Indiana during the weekend of June 1-3, 2012. Officers from the Carmel Police Department, Fishers Police Department, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Department, Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office, Indiana State Police, Noblesville Police Department and Westfield Police Department will take part in the Torch Run. Each agency will start at a designated location throughout the county based upon their respective jurisdiction. All of the participating agencies will then simultaneously converge on downtown Noblesville where they will be joined by local athletes from Special Olympics for a lap around the Noblesville downtown square.
All participating agencies will plan to arrive in downtown Noblesville at 12:30 p.m.. Each agency will cover a distance of approximately 6-9 miles and will have support vehicles and personnel assisting along each respective route. A total of approximately 80 officers will be participating. This event will take place regardless of weather conditions.
At the conclusion of the run, Noblesville City Councilman Greg O'Connor and Hamilton County Special Olympics Coordinator Heather Stephenson will address those in attendance.
