Holbrook’s Special Olympians, including (left to right) Gage Powers, Ivan Johnson (far back), Dolores Lira, Anthony McPherson, Colin Henderson and Randy Ovah, received a warm welcome and plenty of support from students at Holbrook High School and Hulet Elementary School on April 26 as they carried the torch to be passed along to officers of the Holbrook Police Department. The torch made its way to Phoenix with the assistance of local, county and state law enforcement officers as they traveled by bicycle with support teams to ensure it arrived in time for the opening of the Arizona Special Olympic Games on April 28.
