This generous donation along with many others brought our total to $4,155.90 this year.
As a reminder, please join us at the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run benefiting Special Olympics Florida, taking place on April 25, starting out at Headquarters on Six Mile Cypress Parkway ending up at the Big Lots in North Fort Myers on U. S. 41 and Pondella Road. The fun starts at 7 a.m.
The Torch Run is an intra-state relay involving more than 5,000 officers from 300 city, county, state and federal agencies. Participation is restricted to law enforcement and first responder agencies.
