Sheridan Starts Special Olympics Torch Run

Sheridan Starts  Special Olympics Torch Run

The Sheridan County Sheriff' Office will light the Flame of Hope for the Wyoming State Special Olympics tomorrow morning.

The flame will be carried by athletes and law enforcement officials from the sheriff's office to Whitney Commons. The stretch of main street between Wells Fargo and Loucks Street will be staggered with athletes and law enforcement escorts. Sheriff's Deputy, Boot Hill, said they're hoping to raise as much public support as possible.

If you're not feeling up to the run, Hill said it's also ok to cheer on the sidelines. He outlines the route.

The run starts at the Sheriff's Office at 9:00, and so the flame should pass through Main Street at approximately 9:10 to 9:15. Sheridan's flame will pass through the hands of multiple athletes and law enforcement officials as it travels to Buffalo, on to Kaycee and ultimately reaches Laramie. On May 10, this flame will converge with 17 other flames from around the state at the Wyoming Special Olympics opening ceremony.
