#SMCSO Torch Run for Special Olympics Continues to be a Success

On Friday, June 10, 2016, over 200 individuals gathered for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The runners and walkers started at Mission BBQ in San Souci Plaza, crossed the Thomas Johnson Bridge, and then met back at Mission BBQ for lunch.

This year, through the Torch Run, the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office raised over $10,000 for Special Olympics in St. Mary’s County. Not only is the Torch Run one of Special Olympics’ biggest fundraisers, but it is also an excellent way to show support for Special Olympics athletes.

On behalf of Sheriff Tim Cameron, Torch Run Coordinator Detective Dave Alexander and his torch run staff; Lt. Brian Hartz, Debbie Zylak, and Jodi Irwin, the Sheriff’s Office extends their sincere gratitude to the runners, walkers, and generous sponsors who continue to support the Torch Run each year.
