The Special Olympics Torch Run began it's journey to Tampa April 11th. Runners in Key West and Marathon carried it through those communities, before passing it off to agencies in Miami Dade County. The annual Torch Run kicks off the Special Olympics games every year, with law enforcement officers from around the state participating in the fun event.
