Law enforcement officers from all across Texas will come in to Brenham tonight (Wednesday) to run with the Special Olympics torch as it takes its tour through our town.
Tonight there will be a dinner an auction for those involved that will benefit the organization, and tomorrow they will host a pancake breakfast at 6:30am at the American Legion Hall.
The run that carries the torch will begin at 8:30am on S. Market in the Higgins Branch south location parking lot. The runners will move up S. Market, then turn left to head down Main Street to pass the courthouse. They will take right on North Park St. and come to an end at the parking lot across from Fireman’s Park.
The special needs students of Brenham Independent School District will ride along with the runners.
To celebrate the run, there will be ice cream for the kids and runners involved.
Streets used for the routes will be closed during the run, and commuters should plan accordingly.
