Stateline Police Hold Torch Rally for Special Olympics

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- It's a tradition 27 years in the making, Stateline police departments coming together to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics.

This week more than a thousand men and women are carrying this torch from Belvidere to Normal. We caught up with the runners in Loves Park this morning.

Virtually every local department will take a turn running and then officers from across the state will convene in normal on Friday.

Last year, Illinois' torch run raised nearly 3 million dollars.
