Students and youth from Vandlaia, Brownstown, St. Elmo and Ramsey are invited to join the Illinois Department of Corrections to Run WITH the law on Saturday, May 4th.
Run WITH the Law is a community event in which students and area youth join forces with their local law enforcement organization to raise awareness of Special Olympics Illinois athletes and their accomplishments. Participants collect donations to run with law enforcement, who will be carrying the Flame of Hope. Run WITH the Law is not a race but a unified run in which law enforcement will lead in a controlled pace.
Check in will be held from 9:15 a.m. – 10 a.m. at Rogier Park in Vandalia. All participants must raise a minimum of $25 and will receive a 2019 Law Enforcement Torch Run t-shirt to wear during the event as well as a delicious lunch (pork burgers and chips).
Participants are encouraged to continue to fundraise beyond the $25 minimum. Additional incentive prizes will be offered for those who raise $75 or above.
