The Torch for the National Senior Games will be in Roswell on Thursday at 11 a.m. at the Roswell Convention Center, 912 N. Main St., continuing the statewide torch run effort that has already visited Silver City, Las Cruces and Mescalero.
The New Mexico Senior Olympics will recognize local area athletes and a relay team of qualified athletes will carry the torch in downtown Roswell. The torch celebration is open to the public. Refreshments will be served and entertainment provided.
After Roswell, three other cities will host a torch run leading up to flame’s arrival at the beginning of the 2019 National Senior Games presented by Humana, which will be held June 14-25 in Albuquerque for 13,000 athletes.
