A Special start
Special Olympics 2
Participants in the 2016 Kershaw County Special Olympics wave from one of many buses which passed through Camden and east Camden on Friday morning (first photo). A retinue of law enforcement officers escorted the buses on their way to Camden Military Academy (CMA) where athlete John Long was expected to light the cauldron to begin the 9:15 a.m. ceremonies. Long would use the same torch carried by S.C. Highway Patrol (SCHP) Trooper Travis Tiller (second photo, second from far right) during a torch run starting from the east Camden IGA and ending at the CMA grounds.
