On Tuesday, June 6th 2017, the Country Club Hills Police Department and approximately 3,000 officers representing every branch of law enforcement across the state from local police officers to FBI agents will be participating in the Annual Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run, the single largest year-round fundraising vehicle benefiting Special Olympics Illinois. Special Olympics Illinois is a non-for-profit organization offering year-round training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for nearly 22,500 athletes with intellectual disabilities and nearly 21,000 Young Athletes (ages 2-7) with and without intellectual disabilities. Special Olympic programs transform the lives of people with intellectual disabilities and give Special Olympics Athletes continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
The Country Club Hills Police Department hopes you consider supporting our efforts to help transform the lives of Special Olympic athletes from across Illinois. We ask for your support to sponsor our runners, “Guardians of the Flame” who will be running to raise awareness and money for this worthwhile cause. 100% of your tax-deductible contribution goes directly to Special Olympics Illinois, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (Tax EIN: 36-2922811).
The cost of sponsorship is $100.00 per runner; Special Olympics Illinois will send a thank you/tax letter to each donor of $100 or more. If you are unable to be sponsor, a donation in any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your support which is deeply appreciated by the Police Officers, the City Council, Citizens of Country Club Hills, and most of all the “Illinois Special Olympians.” If you have any questions or would like further information in regards to Torch Run merchandise, participating or contributing, please contact Sgt. Brown at email@example.com
