To Moab City and Grand County residents: Moab’s Special Olympics of Utah-Red Rocks team is inviting the public to come either watch or join in with our torch run on Saturday, May 19. Moab Police Department, along with other organizations, will be helping us set it up. If citizens want to participate in the torch run please be at the park at 9:30 a.m. For those who want to watch the event, it will start at 10 a.m.

This run helps raise money for the Special Olympics of Utah-Red Rocks group in Moab. The money helps us compete in local and statewide games. We have to furnish all funds required to compete in events that Special Olympics offers.

We also hope this event helps encourage more of our town and county people that would like to compete with us in all of our events. Please come and join us (and bring your families) in the torch run or just come and watch. Anyone can donate to this great cause. For more information email
