More than 50 athletes carried the Flame of Hope from the Sheriff's Office to Whitney Commons yesterday morning. Sheriff's Deputy, Boot Hill, tells how they did.

Local law enforcement officials and a police dog joined the athletes as they ran down Main Street showing off their athleticism. One athlete, Jackie Saint Isteban, said she's been training for a long time, so her leg of the run was easy.

The torch traveled about 1.6 miles through town.
