The honorary Olympic torch passed through downtown Zanesville today. With the help of law enforcement officials, the flame is making its way to Columbus for tomorrow night’s opening ceremonies of the Special Olympics. This is the 8th year law enforcement officials have participated in the torch run. Last year they raised more than $100,000, which was the biggest fundraiser for the Special Olympics. Law enforcement officials from all over the state are participating in the torch run. There are 15 athletes from Muskingum County competing in this year’s summer games. The torch run started yesterday in Marietta. Each day 12 to 20 runners are relaying the torch an average of 40 miles in order to make it to Columbus on time.
