It started back on July 13 in Sacramento. The Final Leg Law Enforcement Torch Runner (LETR) of the Special Olympics set out on their journey to more than 100 communities throughout California, carrying the Flame of Hope to raise awareness for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games.
Their final destination: The Opening Ceremony on July 25th at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
And on a beautiful summer morning, these law enforcement and Special Olympic athletes from all over the world (Australia, South Korea, Iceland, and the Americas just to name nations) made their way through the streets of San Dimas.

A big thumbs up to the city of San Dimas, the San Dimas City Council, local fire and police personnel, and the California Highway Patrol for hosting these special runners.
Looking good, San Dimas!
