Photos: 2012 CT Special Olympics Games

Add your photos and videos as the torch is carried through your town.

In advance of this weekend’s 2012 Special Olympics Summer Games, police officers and other volunteers will carry the torch through several of our Patch towns and we want your help to preserve the memory of this special event.

 Here are the other routes across the state.

As more than 3,500 law enforcement officers, community members and athletes participate in the torch run, covering over 640 miles in 100 Connecticut towns, your Patch editors will be out snapping photos and taking videos along several legs, but we want to see your spirit, too.

Upload photos and videos from the parade or, better yet, pics and clips featuring the Special Olympian in your life as they prepare for the 2012 games. Be sure to include a caption telling us who is pictured, where they are from and what events they plan to participate in.

Neighborhood files-yes but what neighborhood? I had to look twice at the town before the word PATCH, I thought I was looking at Orange Patch but the picture says Hamden Police Officers. why were Hamden Officers in Orange? Doesn't Orange have their own???

Cheshire torch run article will be posted on Monday. This article is a collection of photos which track the torch through the state to New Haven.

@Leslie you are commenting on the Orange Patch site. Not sure how many care about when Cheshire article is posted? When did we start doing "collection" articles? This looks like the beginning. Of the end. Of the hyper local news...

Tom, this story was cross posted throughout the region to sites involved with the Torch Run including on Cheshire Patch, which is where Leslie posted her comment. But it shows up on all the sites because the story was cross posted.

@Leslie, so hyper local means region? It seems just lazy to write region stories rather than those that have meaning to the community in which you title your heading. ie: ORANGE patch. Why not just call it Patch with no city next to it??

Anyone else doing that would get ticketed!
