New York Trooper Will Carry Torch at Special Olympics World Games in Austria

Subscribe to Big Frog 104 on

New York State Trooper Neil Case has been selected as the NY Law Enforcement representative at the Special Olympics World Games. He’ll be running the “Flame of Hope” across Austria for the final leg and into the opening ceremonies for the Special Olympics World Games.

“I’m very honored and am looking forward to representing New York state and Special Olympics,” says Trooper Case.

"I didn’t feel right having the Special Olympics cover that cost. I raise money for Special Olympics. I don’t spend it"

The Special Olympics holds a special place in Trooper Case’s heart. His son Josh has Down Syndrome but he won’t be making the trip with dad. “He still has to go to school and I’m going to be really busy for the two weeks I’m in Austria.”

It is costing the Special Olympics about $10,000 to send Case to Austria but he wants that money to go to the Special Olympics athletes. “I didn’t feel right having the Special Olympics cover that cost. I raise money for Special Olympics. I don’t spend it.”

Trooper Case is trying to raise the $10,000 so it’s not taking away from the athletes. You can help by donating at SpecialOlympics.com.

Although Trooper Case says taken part in quite a few torch runs locally, this is a whole different level. “I’ll be running the final leg as we bring the torch into the opening ceremonies for the World Games. This is my first time doing anything like that.”

Trooper Case leaves March 7th and will be in Austria for two weeks.
