Illinois State Police District 18 Troopers will be teaming up with local police
agencies next Wednesday to complete the leg of the Torch Run which passes through
District 18. The torch, also known as the Flame of Hope, will travel nearly 1,500
miles as it makes its way to its final destination: The Opening Ceremonies of the
Special Olympics in Bloomington, Illinois. District 18 serves Calhoun, Greene,
Jersey, Macoupin, and Montgomery counties.
