Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

More than two dozen police officers ran from the Durham Police Department to the Wake County line Thursday carrying a torch for Special Olympics.

Durham officers handed the torch to Wake County officers for the final leg of the Law Enforcement Torch Run.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run raises money for the Special Olympics.

More than 2,500 officers and law enforcement employees from around the state have carried the "Flame of Hope" across the state for the start of the Special Olympic Summer Games.

The summer games begin Friday.
