Hello Everyone. It's Torch Run time of year again. That time of year when Law Enforcement all around Northern California begin to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics. We will carry the Flame of Hope from city to city alongside Special Olympics athletes to get ready for the Summer Games at UC Davis. San Jose PD will be running the torch Thursday, June 14th, 2018.
Special Olympics provides free year round athletic training to children and adults with developmental disabilities! But it is so much more than sports to these athletes. At one time some of these athletes were given no hope of living a normal joy filled life like the rest of us. Today, thanks to Special Olympics, many people with developmental disabilities are learning their true potential and worth. They are learning they can do the same things you and I can do and proving old myths to be wrong. So help me to keep these athletes hopes and dreams alive by joining me in the run June 14, 2018 or donating money to support these athletes and their dreams.
