Chino and Chino Hills police departments and the California Institution for Men in Chino ran the "Flame of Hope" for Special Olympics Monday afternoon through the Chino Valley.

It was a hot day to run, carrying fire down IL 159 on Monday, but Swansea police officers, staffers and family members were doing that to raise money and draw attention to the Special Olympics Summer Games. The following officers plan to participate in the Berlin Torch Run: Lieutenant James Gosselin, Lieutenant Christopher Ciuci, Sergeant John McCormack, Detective Ted Fuini, Officer Dave Cruickshank, Officer Aimee Krzykowski, Officer John Flynn, Officer Mark DePinto, Officer Michael LoCastro, Officer Jeffrey Scoppetto and Officer Tyler Cyr.

At approximately 11 a.m., the Torch Run will arrive in Neoga.

The run helps to raise awareness of the Special Olympics Illinois athletes and their sports achievements. Cloverdale PD personnel will carry the torch through Cloverdale approximately 3.1 miles to the intersection of Dutcher Creek Drive and Theresa Drive, where they will hand the torch back to the Sheriff's Department personnel.

The Special Olympics Summer Games will be held Saturday and Sunday at Cal State Long Beach.

Law enforcement officers across the commonwealth are running for a good cause as part of the Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run. There, Mattoon police officers will take over carrying the Flame of Hope north to City Hall. "This is our first opportunity to participate in a national movement by demonstrating our commitment to our community and our law enforcement partners. I want to extend my sincerest appreciation to City of Sonoma Police Chief Bret Sackett for including us in this event".
