The Special Olympics torch run goes through downtown Salina on Wednesday afternoon. Agencies participating in the run included the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Salina Police Department, Kansas Highway Patrol, Community Corrections, Salina Blue Thunder, Salina Fire Department and Court Services. The 10th annual barbecue fundraiser is set for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the sheriff’s office. Half the money raised will go to Special Olympics Kansas and half will go to the local group of athletes called the Salina Blue Thunder.
