Our agency is honored to be escorting the Special Olympics Torch, "The Flame of Hope" on its journey to the 2020 Special Olympics Northern California Fall Games at U.C. Davis, which will be held November 14-15, 2020. San Jose PD will be carrying the flame of hope through our city on Thursday, November 5, 2020. Please note the change of date due to the cancellation of many events because of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We hope you will consider joining our team and help us raise funds for Special Olympics Northern California.
Your $35 registration fee will include a dry-fit Law Enforcement Torch Run Runners shirt that you will wear with pride when we run the Torch through our local community. San Jose's Police Amateur Athletic Associations (PAAF) will reimburse all PAAF members $35 registration fee after the completion of the run. We are encouraging everyone to go the extra mile and raise a minimum of $125 which is the approximate cost of one athlete to participate in one sport season.
Because of the pandemic many Special Olympics fundraisers and sporting events had to be cancelled, we are thankful the Torch Run was rescheduled.
If you are unable to join us in the run, please consider making a donation to support our team or contacting the team Captain, Sgt. Jodi Williams, for ways to volunteer your time the day of the run.
