STATEWIDE – Despite Tuesday’s rainy weather dozens of police officers ran several miles this morning to support the Special Olympics.
The “Law Enforcement Torch Run” started this morning in Sanford. Sanford Police Officers passed the torch to North Berwick Police who continued to pass it through Police Departments up to Elliot. The torch run raises money and awareness for the Special Olympics.
North Berwick Police say they raised over 2,500 dollars this year for the organization.
“Its for the kids with intellectual disabilities I had the chance to work with them at the games down in York County its inspiring and this is for them.” Tim Niehoff, Patrolman, North Berwick Police
The Torch Run ends Friday at the University of Maine in Orono with the kickoff of the Special Olympics Summer Games.
