Last leg of torch's journey

Final destination for flame

The Flame of Hope for Special Olympics Arkansas is carried around the track (above) at Harding University’s First Security Stadium before the lighting ceremony is held to kick off the 2021 Summer Games. Attendance at the stadium was limited because of COVID-19, which caused the Special Olympics to be canceled last year. A video of the torch run was to be sent to registered athletes, coaches, volunteers and sponsors. The Games will be held next week. See article on Page B1.
