Roughly three-dozen representatives from five law enforcement agencies ran to four schools along a 5-mile route through Starkville for the city’s edition of the 2014 Mississippi Law Enforcement Torch Run.

The torch run is an event that takes place in cities throughout the state during the week leading up to the Special Olympics Mississippi Summer Games, which begin Friday at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi. The run’s goals are to raise awareness about the Special Olympics as law enforcement branches run through their communities, carrying the torch from point to point as the final week before the Special Olympics begin.
