A torch that will ultimately end up at the Special Olympics games in Wichita was carried through the streets of Salina on Wednesday.

The Saline County leg of the Special Olympics Torch Run weaved through town Wednesday morning.

The final destination for the torch is Wichita, for the Kansas Special Olympic games. On Friday May 31st it will arrive at Cessna Stadium to signify the start of a weekend of competition that will challenge more than 1400 athletes.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run originated in Kansas over 30 years ago. It is in all 50 states and 30 countries.

As a fund raiser for the event, the Saline County Sheriff’s Office will be grilling up some burgers and hot dogs. The BBQ will take place this Thursday and Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the training room in the Saline County Sheriff’s Office. A $5 donation will purchase your plate.
