GREENSBORO -- Friday offered perfect weather for a run, and this one had special meaning.

The Special Olympics torch made its way through Greensboro Friday. Members of the Greensboro and High Point police departments, the Guilford County Sheriff's Office and State Troopers carried the flame of hope as it traveled through the city.

It will eventually arrive in Raleigh to open the 2013 Special Olympics Summer Games.

And, one special olympian joined the journey, covering nearly four miles, ending his trek at the Greensboro Police Department.

"To me, it's a big honor for them to do this; for them to take their time and raise money to help make awareness," said Special Olympics athlete Bryan Evans.

The Special Olympic Games start May 31. More than 1,400 athletes from across the state will compete.
