 Alexandria Police Participates in Special Olympics Torch Run

On June 9, members of the Alexandria Police Department, along with other City employees, will participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run, benefiting Special Olympics Virginia, as it passes through the Northern Virginia area. Officers will carry the Flame of Hope from the Washington Sailing Marina near Ronald Reagan National Airport to Jones Point, a leg of almost four miles.

Each June, more than 2,000 law enforcement officers carry the Flame of Hope more than 1,900 miles across Virginia to kick off the Summer Games in Richmond.  For the officers, it’s about more than carrying the torch for Special Olympics Virginia. It’s a mission; a serious commitment by the Virginia Law Enforcement community to pay homage to our heroes – the Special Olympics Virginia athletes and their families.

Since 1986, police departments, sheriff’s offices, regional jails, correctional and probation officers, as well as other law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC), pound the pavement every day to organize fundraisers and more importantly, promote the mission of Special Olympics. The Alexandria Police Department has been partnering with Special Olympics Virginia almost since the inception of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, raising funds and awareness about intellectual disabilities.
