The Law Enforcement Torch Run is this Friday

The Law Enforcement Torch Run begins at Lower Keys Community College on Stock Island at 9 a.m. Friday and enters Key West thereafter after stopping at Gerald Adams Elementary School. It ends at the Southernmost Point in Key West.

The Sheriff’s Office, Monroe County Special Olympics Committee, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Key West Police Department, the Navy, Coast Guard and the Florida Wildlife Commission participate in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run.

The Key West leg will begin at the FKCC Public Safety Building on Stock Island with a brief stop at Gerald Adams Elementary School.

Participants will then run to the Sheriff’s Office headquarters building on Stock Island for a brief stop and then on to the new Publix in Key Plaza.

The run will continue to Poinciana School, Key West High School, HOB School, the MARC House and Glenn Archer School. An exchange of the torch from the Sheriff’s Office to Key West Police will take place at the Southernmost Point.

There will be water stops at all the schools and the run pace will be slow (no faster than 10 minute miles). Runners can run any leg they choose. Support vehicles will accompany the runners.

T-shirts or hats can be purchased by contacting Jo Socha at the Sheriff’s Office Cudjoe Substation at 305-745-3184 or at 305-393-2466.
