Some of the hearty Law Enforcement Torch Runners on a break in Marquette.

MARQUETTE, MI – Great Lakes Radio News – An annual tradition on Mark and Walt in the Morning returned today with the Law Enforcement Torch Run For Special Olympics coming through town.

The Torch Run is an awareness campaign and fund raiser for Special Olympics in Michigan and features a 750-mile relay run from Copper Harbor in the far northern U.P. to the downstate locale of Sterling Heights.  All proceeds raised through this effort go to Special Olympics programs across the state.

We spent the morning talking with the officers who were on the run today and promoted the effort and how listeners could get involved.  The easiest way to do so is to log on to the website for Special Olympics in Michigan.  To log on to the website, please click “HERE“.
