NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - The Special Olympics "flame of hope" is continuing its journey with a final stop at the opening games at the New York Special Olympics.
Within Western New York alone, 20 different torch runs have already happened in the past week. Another run is set to culminate along the rainbow bridge shortly after noon Wednesday.
"Law enforcement torch run is not just an event," Patrol Agent Jeffrey Wilson said. "It's a grass roots organization that helps raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics and it's athletes."
