Nobody can hold a candle to Davidsonville's Mike Heup.  

He might be the greatest torch runner in the history of the Special Olympics. On his 37th brithday, Mike blew out the candles on his cake asking for one burning wish, and that is to carry the torch a world away.  

And on this night, his wish may come true.  

Mike just went over his fund raising goal of $10,000. If he out raises nine other world special Olympians, Mike will win the chance of carrying the torch in the Winter Games in Austria next month.  

He has great support from his twin brothers, his sister, his parents and from Annapolis Police Detective Chuck Bealefeld.
