www. LovellCh ronicle.com April 22, 2010 I The Lovell Chronicle i 5 Law enforcement to carry a torch for Special Olympics BY BRAD DEVEREAUX Area Law Enforcement personnel will light a torch and carry it for children of the Special Olympics in a fundraiser event scheduled for mid-May. Big Horn County Sheriff Ken Blackburn said his de- partment started the event last year and is taking the lead again in 2010, organiz- ing the torch run that will go from Basin to Lovell. Area law enforcement will join the Sheriffs Department, traveling on foot, horse- back, bikes, or other forms of transportation. "The Special Olym- pics is a cause we as law enforcement support very strongly," Blackburn said. "We're going out to carry the torch and raise aware- ness for these kids." Kids from the Special Olympics are expected to join in the festivities again this year, Blackburn said. Last year, several Special Olympians rode in a horse- drawn wagon for a portion of the ride. Blackburn said the pub- lic is welcome to join the group for a barbeque fol- lowing the torch run. Dona- tions for the Special Olym- pics are welcome and will be collected throughout the event, he said. Blackburn said he plans to purchase the barbeque meat and condiments with personal funds and salads and des- serts will be contributed by torch run participants and the public. During the debut of the torch run in 2009, the group raised $3,600 for Special Olympics, Blackburn said. The goal for this year's event is about the same, he said. Planning for this year's event started earlier than in 2009, he said, and the group is hoping for a good turnout. More details about the event will be publicized in the future. For more infor- mation contact the Sheriffs Department at 568-2324.
