KALISPELL - Flathead Valley Law Enforcement are kicking off this summer's Special Olympics State games by walking 52 miles in their annual Torch Run.
Thursday afternoon, agencies from all across the Flathead Valley walked, biked and jogged from Les Schwab Tire Center through downtown Main Street. The Torch Run is the largest law enforcement benefit in Flathead County that challenges officers to run 52 miles. Proceeds from funds raised will go to the State Special Olympics.
"It's a nice event to take part in. It's a great cause it's a nice break from your usual day at work so its a fun event," KPD Captain Wade Rademacher said. The event concluded at Lion Park with an open barbecue for the community.
