The Law Enforcement Torch Run
On Sunday, June 12, 2022 members of the Vernon Hills Police Department (including friends and family members) joined representatives from law enforcement agencies across Illinois in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
The weather was absolutely fantastic for a great run.
There are twenty-three legs of the Torch Run throughout the state. The eighth leg started in Gurnee at 6:30 a.m. Shortly before 8:00 am, Vernon Hills runners took the torch at the intersection of Routes 21 & 60. They ran south approximately two miles where the torch was handed off to members of the Lincolnshire Police Department for the next section of the trip. The journey ended approximately 31 miles south in Lincolnwood, after joining up with another leg of the run in Niles.
