The annual Torch Run State Conference will be held at the Wyndham in Virginia Beach November 8-9. Join fellow law enforcement partners, Special Olympics Virginia staff and athletes as we celebrate the traditions that have made the Torch Run partnership Special Olympics' largest grassroots fundraising endeavor, plus learn best practices that can keep us growing! Hear from the athletes themselves about the positive impact that law enforcement officers have made on their lives, and educate yourselves, through interaction with Torch Run leadership, on the ways that your respective agency can continue to make a difference in the future.
The registration fee is $35/person; the deadline to register is Oct. 13. For more details, including information on accommodations and the registration form, click here. If you have any questions about the conference, please contact Ellen Head.
Cici's Teams Up with the Torch Run to Raise Some Dough!
Thanks to Cici's Pizza and the Torch Run for raising some dough - $12,000! - to help Special Olympics Virginia create more champions! For the entire month of July, participating Cici's across Virginia sold icons to benefit the program. The month was capped off with a "Cover the Cruiser" opportunity, where officers spent the day selling icons to cover their law enforcement vehicles. Cici's also donated 10% of sales that day at participating locations. Now that's a tasty partnership!
Congratulations to Tim Baker of Chesapeake, the winner of this year's Harley raffle and the owner of a new 2014 Street Glide Special. The winning ticket number was 0110 and it was sold by Tory Thompson with the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office.
