Law Enforcement Torch Run to pass through Colonial Beach

On June 6, the Colonial Beach Police Department will once again host a leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run through Colonial Beach. At 11 a.m. runners will gather at the Beach Gate Shopping Center (700 McKinney Blvd).  After leaving the shopping center, the runners will go east on Colonial Ave., turn south on Washington Ave., go east on Boundary St. and north on the Boardwalk after making a loop on Irving Ave.  The approximately 2.5-mile run will end at Town Hill.  

The Torch Run in Colonial Beach is one of multiple Torch Runs throughout Virginia, all of which converge on June 7th to light the cauldron at the Special Olympics Virginia Summer Games Opening Ceremony at the Robins Center on the University of Richmond Campus.  Here, over 1,200 Special Olympics Virginia athletes from all over the state will compete in swimming, power lifting, softball, track and field, bowling and tennis.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest global grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness campaign for Special Olympics.  Law enforcement agencies raise money for the Special Olympics primarily through the sale of Law Enforcement Torch Run T-shirts and hats but also accept donations.  Official Torch Run t-shirts and hats ($15 each or 2 items for $25) are now on sale and will be available on the day of the run.

Law enforcement officers, public safety personnel and the public who are interested in participating in the Torch Run or who wish to purchase a t-shirt, hat, make a donation, or cheer on the runners should contact one of the following torch run organizers:
