FLEMINGTON, NJ – Law enforcement officers from across Hunterdon participated in the 35th Annual Torch Run to benefit the New Jersey Special Olympics.

More than 3,000 officers from 340 New Jersey police departments participated in the run and carried the torch known as the "Flame of Hope" on June 8.

Each year, detectives and staff from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office, along with other law enforcement officers from Hunterdon, organize and participate in the torch run to raise funds and promote awareness for the Special Olympics of New Jersey.

“I am proud of the detectives, office staff, and fellow law enforcement officers for participating each year and helping to bring smiles to children and family members involved in the Special Olympics,” said Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III in a press release.

After the torch was carried through the state, it was used to light the Special Olympics New Jersey cauldron at the opening ceremony of the 2018 New Jersey Special Olympics Summer Games at The College of New Jersey in Ewing.
