Deputy 1st Class Amber Owens, with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, has been selected to carry the Flame of Hope throughout Russia as part of the 2022 Special Olympics World Games in Kazan.

“We are especially proud of Deputy Owens on her selection to this team,” said Frederick County Sheriff Chuck Jenkins. “Amber has been actively involved with Special Olympics since joining the Sheriff’s Office and we look forward to her representing this agency, Frederick County, and Maryland at these World Games.”

Owens is part of the Final Leg Torch Run Team, serving as a Guardian of the Flame® representative. Final Leg runners from around the world will proudly represent the local Torch Run and Special Olympics programs. The Final Leg Torch Run Team will embark on different routes, running the Flame of Hope throughout cities and communities across Russia at various events.
