Students carry Special Olympic World Games torch

The unified relay across America blazed a trail through Tarrytown this morning.

It's all part of the journey to the Special Olympic World Games that will take place in Los Angeles next month.

The Sleepy Hollow High School Team USA and their special needs Pioneer team carried the torch called the "Flame of Hope."

The flame was lit in Athens, Greece on May 14.

Sleepy Hollow High School is sending five students to Los Angeles and a coach.

More than 7,000 athletes representing 177 countries will participate in the games which begin on July 25.
