ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Delta County's Law Enforcement Torch Run is happening Wednesday evening.

Those wishing to join the run Wednesday will meet in the Delta Plaza Mall parking lot at 6 p.m. with the 1.5 mile run beginning at 6:30 pm.

There is no charge to run and show your support but Torch Run t-shirts can be purchased at the event.

All money raised goes to benefit Special Olympics.

Kyle Piatt is the local organizers for the Delta County portion of the Torch Run. He is also an officer with Escanaba Public Safety.

"All the money comes back if there is a basketball tournament. Sny sort of event held for the Special Olympic athletes and all the money donated and acquired comes back to our local community."

Thanks to community generosity, Delta County's Torch Run has already exceeded its $1000 goal.
