Please support my fundraising efforts as I escort the Special Olympics Torch, "The Flame of Hope" on its journey to the 2020 Special Olympics Northern California Fall Games at UC Davis. Please note the updated date because of the cancellation of many events due to COVID-19. San Jose Police will be carrying the Torch Thursday, November 5, 2020.
The funds I and other Law Enforcement personnel will raise will go a long way to ensure that Special Olympics can continue to enrich the lives of children and adults with intellectual "diffabilities" (no that is not a typo, this word has emerged as a more acceptable way to describe special needs athletes, while some do not mind the term disabilities some find it offensive). The training provided to athletes is free to the athlete and their family.
Many fundraising events had to be cancelled because of the pandemic so if you can find a little extra to give it will make a huge difference to this worthwhile cause.
Every dollar counts and whatever you can give will be very much appreciated.
