Members for the Wilmington Police Department and the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office braved the wet conditions Monday to carry the torch for the Special Olympics.
The runners left Wilmington Police Headquarters at 8:00 a.m. They ran from downtown Wilmington Hampstead where they passed the torch to the team from the Pender Correctional Institution.
Law enforcement torch runs are held every year throughout the United States to build the relationship between Special Olympics and the law enforcement community.
North Carolina's Special Olympics team has been selected to participate in the 2010 Special Olympics USA National Games in Nebraska this summer. Click here to learn more about the games.
