Make it YOUR mile
This is YOUR mile! Although participants are required to tag their photo with #CSGTorch2021, we recommend all Torch Runners get creative and help us spread the Cornhusker State Games word through their own social media networks.
Find something small and safe to carry as your “torch” (no open flames). Make it fun or sentimental, i.e. the game ball from your best pitching performance, your grandfather’s watch or your Luke Skywalker action figure. If sharing a photo or the story of your “torch”, use #MyTorch2021.
