SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM)--The Law Enforcement Torch Run event took place early this morning.
The event started at the Basketball Hall of Fame and ended at Springfield College. This is an annual fundraising event to support the Special Olympics which also took place Saturday. Western Mass News spoke with a few volunteers at the event who are working to do their part to give back.
"I was interested in coming back to mass to volunteer to give back to the community because this is where I originally got my nursing license," volunteer Jennifer Bryant said.
Representatives from Springfield College told Western Mass News that today's event celebrates the enjoyment of inclusion, and celebrates the triumphs of the Special Olympics athletes as they return to the sports they love.
