TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CNS) – Hundreds of law enforcement officers ran down the main street of the state capital Tuesday, carrying the torch for the 36th Special Olympics.
So far, more than $3 million has been donated by Publix for this year's games.
29-year-old Kami Downey has competed for 21 years.
“Special Olympics inspires all of us to try harder, play harder, be fit, eat healthy, have a good attitude, cheer on our friends and meet new people. It’s great,” said Downey.
The 2019 games will be held this summer at the ESPN complex near Orlando.
