SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Athletes bring a torch run through Springfield this morning as part of the build up to the Show-Me State Games this summer.

A lighting ceremony is set for 9:30 at Park Central Square.  Then the torch will be run to Hammons Field.

This is one of six runs this month to build up public awareness of the games.  Two more will be run in July. 

The games are June 20-July 27 in Columbia, Missouri. Show-Me State Games is an Olympic-style sports festival with more than 40 sports for all ages and ability levels. This is the 30th anniversary of the event.
