Special Olympics Torch Run

The torch is carried from the Bar Harbor town pier to Key Bank in Ellsworth. From there it is carried all the way to Orono where the Special Olympics are held every year. The Mount Desert Island Police Departments (Bar Harbor PD, Mount Desert PD, and Southwest Harbor PD) join together to carry the torch each year. If you are interested and want to join the run contact us at 288-3391 and we'll let you know when the next run is. The Maine Special Olympic website is also a good tool to provide information.
