Saturday, June 3, SBPD Cpl. Brianne Williamson (L) is joined by Special Olympics Vermont (SOVT) athletes during the 2017 SOVT Law Enforcement Torch Run, heralding the opening of the Summer Games. The Torch Run is a four-day running event where law enforcement and public safety personnel carry the Flame of Hope from the four corners of the state into the opening ceremony to light the cauldron and begin the games, which took place June 3 and 4 at the University of Vermont. The annual event brings together nearly 600 athletes to showcase their gifts and talents.
