Photos: Special Olympics torch run
The Special Olympic torch was carried from Elba to Batavia today by a group of runners -- mostly members of the local law enforcement community -- with a stop at Woodward Field for a run around the track with Batavia fifth-graders.
The torch was carried from Genesee ARC's location in Elba to ARC's main facility on Walnut Street.
The fifth-graders were at Van Detta Stadium today to participate in a variety of track and field competitions, but mostly the event is about helping the Class 2019 get to know each other as they transfer from three different elementary schools into a single middle school.
The children also heard remarks by some Special Olympic athletes.
