Nevada County Probation will raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Northern California (SONC) by participating in the 2023 Law Enforcement Torch Run on June 13, 2023.

The Nevada County leg of the run will take place June 13, 2023, at 10:00 a.m.  The run will start and stop at the Rood Center Parking Lot.  This is the second year the Nevada County Probation Department has sponsored and organized the run for our County.  Participants this year will include members from the Probation Department, Sheriff’s Department, District Attorney’s Office, Northern CHP, Truckee Police Department, Nevada City Police Department and Grass Valley Police Department. 

The Torch Run features more than 3,500 law enforcement personnel from hundreds of local agencies carrying the Special Olympics Flame of Hope throughout Northern California. The Torch Run will culminate at the annual Summer Games, held this year from June 23-25 at Santa Clara University. Summer Games is the largest local Special Olympics event and brings together more than 1,000 athletes and coaches from 20+ counties to compete in multiple sports.

The Northern California Torch Run began in 1996 and has raised more than $20 million for Special Olympics through the run itself, plus multiple other fundraisers throughout the year. Learn more at
