GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

Deputies partnered with the Special Olympics for a torch run Thursday morning through Ascension Parish.

Participants ran more than three miles from LA 44 to the courthouse in Gonzales. Law enforcement agencies partnered with the Arc of East Ascension this year to honor the Special Olympians.

"I love it; I love it here," said Donnie Guillory. "The cops are nice. They're nice to me. I love it. I love it here."

After the run, Sheriff Jeff Wiley joined his deputies in entertaining the Olympians with music and food.
