WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — Law enforcement officers from every corner of Wisconsin are carrying the torch for Special Olympics Thursday.

Hundreds of officers and others are running, walking, biking and roller blading as they help kick off the Special Olympics State Summer Games in Stevens Point.

Gov. Scott Walker joined officers in Waukesha County Thursday morning. Walker joked that it’s nice to be running for something other than politics.

Special Olympics Wisconsin is celebrating the 26th anniversary of the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Last year it raised more than $1 million to support Special Olympics.
