The Cauldron is lit during the Opening Ceremony of the 1988 Special Olympics National Games in Sydney, NSW.

The Torch Run and the lighting of the Cauldron are two of the most iconic moments of a National Games. Supported by the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a major supporter of the Special Olympics movement, athletes are given the opportunity to run with the Flame of Hope in the lead up to the Opening Ceremony. View our images above and below to see some highlights of previous torch run events.

Make sure you grab your tickets for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies so you won't miss this special moment. Click here to purchase tickets.

Families and supporters of the athletes are also encouraged to attend the Welcome evening at Melbourne Aquarium on Tuesday 21 October and The Siblings Splash Out at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre on Wednesday 22 October. Head to the National Games website for more information.
