DA’s Office Carries the Flame of Hope in Special Olympics Torch Run

On Tuesday, June 23, employees from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office participated in the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run to raise awareness and money for Special Olympics of Northern California.

The DA’s Office team accepted the ‘Flame of Hope’ torch from Alameda Police Department, taking it on a four-and-a-half mile course through Alameda and into Oakland. At the end of their route, the team passed the Flame of Hope to representatives from the Oakland Police Department outside their headquarters on 7th Street.

The torch is nearing the end of its two-week journey to the campus of UC Davis. On June 26, it will be used to light the cauldron for the opening ceremonies of the Northern California Special Olympics.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has been a proud supporter of Special Olympics for over 25 years, and supports their mission to help athletes with special needs develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families and community.

The DA’s Office team kindly stopped by the Rene C. Davidson Courthouse by Lake Merritt for a few quick photos before continuing on to pass the torch to OPD. They would like to thank OPD and the DA Inspectors for their assistance.
