ROCHESTER, Minn. – Dozens of people, including Rochester authorities, were on hand Tuesday morning for a run for a cause.

They were all taking part in the annual Torch Run for Special Olympics. People from across the area joined them on the 96 plus mile journey, all to get awareness of the upcoming games. We spoke to local law enforcement and they say something like this is important. “Being in the law enforcement community, we don’t always have a lot of positive interactions with people because sometimes it’s not the best times of their lives. The relationship we have with the athletes is absolutely wonderful. They love us, we love them,” Macey Tesmer Operations Captain of the Adult Detention Center said.

The summer games will be held this Friday in Stillwater.
