It was such a fulfilling and rewarding experience and during her time volunteering, she spoke with the Coordinator for the Sheriff’s Dept., Sgt. Gus Proctor about other ways to support the Special Olympics-the Torch Run was brought up. She then spoke with the staff on their interest and they decided to order t-shirts. Sgt. Proctor delivered them and the group photo was taken.
Each year the Charles County Sheriff’s Office sponsors several fundraising events in support of the Special Olympics of Maryland. One in particular is the a Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics which will take place June 6,2019 in LaPlata, Maryland, of which center staff will attend. The Run is 3.5 miles for runners or 3 miles for walkers. This is a family event that raises money for the Special Olympics and by purchasing the Torch shirts, the money raised will help Special Olympics of Maryland.
