■ The Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is set for 12:30-2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 18 at La Jolla Shores. An officer will accompany each athlete as they run the Flame of Hope from the Shores beach to La Jolla Cove, where there will be a dedication ceremony at 1:30 p.m. The Flame of Hope was lit in Greece, home of the Olympics, and is traveling across the sea to the United States. Once here, it will travel 4,648 miles through 122 communities. Its final destination is the Special Olympics opening ceremony at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Village Merchants request La Jollans line the route along Torrey Pines Road or run behind the Special Olympics athletes to show support.
