DURHAM - It was a long day of travel for the Special Olympics torch, known as the flame of hope. Its journey began at 4 a.m. in Concord, and it was carried by runners all the way to Durham. Since mid-May, the torch has traveled more than 800 miles around the state.
The last leg of the trip for the torch ends at Memorial Field at the University of New Hampshire, when it lights the cauldron. Once that flame is lit, the games are officially underway.
New Hampshire law enforcement agencies help raise money for the organization with the Torch Run. In 2014, the run raised more $400,000.
Close to 900 athletes will compete in events from swimming to power-lifting.
Organizers say more than 1,000 volunteers help put the event together every year.
