2021 Fall Festival Torch Run
Thanks are extended to the Philadelphia Police Department and other local law enforcement partners, SOPA athletes, unified student partners, event sponsors, and political/civic leaders that participated in the Unified Fall Festival Torch Run for Special Olympics PA.
The segmented non-competitive run (approx. 26 miles in total) kicked off from XFINITY Live! Philadelphia before weaving its way throughout South and Downtown Philadelphia and into University City/West Philadelphia to the Philadelphia Art Museum. After traversing nearly 13 miles of the city, the run headed West via MLK Boulevard/West River Drive into Bala Cynwyd and through the heart of the Main Line to Villanova. All proceeds benefit Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) and the largest student run Special Olympics event in the world, the annual Fall Festival at Villanova University.
