Special Olympics Connecticut will present a grand-scale event when the Unified Relay Across America is in the state.
The relay will give everyone in the country, including Connecticut residents, a chance to carry the Flame of Hope as it makes its way across the United States.
It will end at Los Angeles, Calif., the site of the Special Olympics World Games. Over the course of 46 days, in a hand-to-hand exchange, more than 20,000 participants will take part in the relay as it passes through all 50 states.
All invited to join in
The Relay will pass through Connecticut on Saturday, May 30, Sunday, May 31 and Monday, June 1, and all are invited to join in, including individuals, corporate teams, organizations, and groups of friends and family members.
