The Unified Fall Festival Torch Run (#UnifiedTorchRun) for Special Olympics PA is a segmented non-competitive run (approx. 26 miles in total) with 18 segments ranging from a ½ mile to 3 ½ miles. The Run will kick-off from XFINITY Live! Philadelphia on Friday, November 2nd and will not officially end until the Flame of Hope lights the cauldron during Opening Ceremonies at Villanova University in The Pavilion.

The Unified Fall Festival Torch Run will be led by members of the Philadelphia Police Department and other local law enforcement partners and will include Special Olympics PA athletes, unified student partners, event sponsors, political supporters, civic leaders and many other members of Philadelphia and the surrounding community, all of whom will take part in this unique and inspiring journey. The Run also serves as a run in memory of fallen officers from across the state.

All proceeds benefit SOPA and the largest student run Special Olympics event in the world, the annual Fall Festival at Villanova University (November 2 - 4).
