2014 Ohio Law Enforcement Tourch Run

Chief Court Constable Tom Chidester, Wood County Common Pleas Court has participatedin the Law Enforcement torch run for Special Olympics for over fifteen years. The law enforcement torch run has raised a large amount money for Special Olympics.

The photo above includes Tom Chidester and Court Constable David Milne.

The 2014 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Ohio was bigger and better than ever before as more agencies and officers got involved statewide!  This year over 2,000 officers  ran or biked one of six main arteries or one of several satellite community runs  throughout the state.  The Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run is the largest grass roots fundraiser for Special Olympics Ohio.

The 2014 Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run, presented by The Kroger Company, took place June 20 - 27 across Ohio.  The officers carried the “Flame of Hope” through over 150 communities, creating awareness of Special Olympics and raising funds for the program.  The Torch Run culminated in the Final Leg coming into Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Friday, June 27 to pass the “Flame of Hope” to Special Olympics athletes during Opening Ceremonies, signifying the official start to the 2014 Special Olympics Ohio State Summer Games.

There are five main routes which originated in Athens, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Marietta, and Toledo and traveled to Columbus. In addition there were several community satellite legs throughout the state. The Final Leg brought together officers from all parts of the state to carry the torch to the Opening Ceremonies of the State Summer Games.  The Final Leg will left the State Highway Patrol Academy at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 27 and participants ran with the torch 3.2 miles to Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. All route information can be found by clicking the link in the left column.

The Kroger Company has generously served as the Presenting Sponsor for the Torch Run for the past nine years. Officers visited Kroger stores as they traveled to Columbus on their respective routes.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest year-round fundraising event benefiting Special Olympics Ohio. The annual intrastate relay and its various fundraising projects have two goals: to raise money and to gain awareness for the athletes who participate in Special Olympics Ohio, along with providing officers visibility while giving back to their respective communities. 

The Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run is endorsed by the Fraternal Order of Police, Ohio and the Ohio Association of Chief's of Police.

It is More Than Just A Run

Involvement in the Law Enforcement Torch Run unites departments and agencies throughout the state and extends beyond the annual run. Each year officers participate and organize events such as Polar Plunges, Building Sits, Plane Pulls and other special events throughout the year. All of these events generate additional funds for Special Olympics Ohio.

For more information on the Torch Run please contact Paige Ludwig at pludwig@sooh.org or at 614.239.7050.
