Benefiting Special Olympics Virginia

Each summer, law enforcement officials from across Virginia carry the Flame of Hope on a 1,900 journey to the Special Olympics Virginia Summer Games Opening Ceremony in Richmond. This   8-day Torch Run involves more than 2,000 law enforcement officers and personnel representing more than 200 law enforcement agencies across Virginia. 

In the Potomac Area (Region 2) there are several “legs” of the Torch Run that make their way from the Prince William County line to the edge of Hanover County. There are also splinter runs held in King George, Montross, Colonial Beach and Kilmarnock.
