The torch run is intended to bring awareness of Special Olympics programs to the community. Any and all support from our community for this non-profit organization is appreciated by the Special Olympics athletes and their families. Because of community donations, athletes do not have to pay any money to participate in the many individual and team sports that are available to them through Special Olympics.
Officers carry the torch from locations throughout
to UC Davis, the location of the Summer Games. Special Olympics only allows law enforcement agencies to carry the torch even though other groups have requested permission to do so. This is an honor that our law enforcement profession is awarded and we are pleased to participate in such a rewarding and important community fund-raising event. California
