Area Law Enforcement Officers Raise Money For Special Olympics
Gainesville Law Enforcement officers are carrying a torch for the Special Olympics.
About 200 people, officers and their families as well as athletes, ate at the Outback Steakhouse Wednesday afternoon to raise money for a law enforcement torch run that will raise money for the Special Olympics. Meal tickets were sold for $15 at the door.
They raised approximately $2,000 Wednesay. All proceeds will go to the 27th Annual Torch Run, which is held to raise awareness and funds for the Special Olympics.
Officers from several agencies will run through Alachua County with a torch this month.
