Law enforcement members and Special Olympics athletes will gather in San Luis Obispo Tuesday evening to carry a torch from the Veterans Hall to the San Luis Obispo County Courthouse.
Runners will gather at about 5 p.m. to carry the "Flame of Hope" down Monterey St.
The ceremony honors local Special Olympics Athletes.
The Torch Run began in 1981 and now doubles as a fundraiser to raise money for Special Olympics Programs.
Founder of the program Richard LaMunyon said, "Through the [Law Enforcement Torch Run] and Special Olympics partnership we are lighting the way for acceptance and inclusion."
