SALT LAKE CITY — The Special Olympics Torch Run started Wednesday morning at the state Capitol, with local law enforcement participating.

KSL's Shara Park joined law enforcement representatives from around the state in carrying the torch. They ran to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics.

The Torch Run director Darin Sweeten said, "We're really just trying to send the message of inclusion, of hope, and we want these athletes to know that we're here for them. We just want them to achieve great things."

Today's leg of the Torch Run went from the State Capitol to Draper. It will culminate with the Special Olympics opening at Herriman High School June 7.
