Special Olympics Arizona is an organization that DPS loves to work with all year round. In April, DPS hosts the Special Olympcs BBQ, which is always a community hit! The Law Enforcement Torch Run is another event put on by Special Olympics Arizona that DPS personnel always look forward to!
According the Special Olympcs Arizona’s website, “The mission of the Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run is to raise funds and awareness for Special Olympics Arizona statewide. We carry the Torch representing the Flame of Hope and dedicate ourselves to helping Special Olympics Arizona throughout the state.”
The Torch Run is an event that takes place nationally and in different areas around Arizona throughout the spring and summer.
Pictured in this article are DPS personnel from District Six and Wickenburg, participated in the 2017 Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run and ran alongside members from Special Olympics Arizona.
All money raised at the Torch Run goes to benefit the Special Olympics athletes and their programs.
