Special Olympics Torch Run
Granville Auxiliary officers Brian Simpson, Michael Stickle, W. Jason Sanford and Ryan Nann, along with Dispatcher Tonya Birchfield (Teddy Trooper), attended the Special Olympics at Ohio State University. The Ohio Troopers Coalition provided a tent and goods that were handed out to participants.

Patrol personnel from all over the state participated in the 2009 Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run June 15 – 26.

Relay teams set out from all corners of the state, running and biking their way toward Columbus and the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics at Jesse Owens Stadium at The Ohio State University. The Law Enforcement Torch Run unites officers from different agencies and corrections departments in an effort to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Ohio.

The final leg of the relay began at the Patrol’s Training Academy. Patrol officers, professional staff and family members ran, walked and biked together from the Academy to Ohio State University to complete the final leg, which culminated with the final passing of the torch to a Special Olympian.
