Fire mar­shals par­tic­i­pate in law en­force­ment torch run

Sunday Star - - LOCAL -

— Deputy state fire mar­shals from the Up­per East­ern Re­gional Of­fice in Eas­ton sup­ported Spe­cial Olympics of Mary­land on Wed­nes­day, June 6, by run­ning in the Law En­force­ment Torch Run.

The fire mar­shals ran side by side with their law en­force­ment part­ners down U.S. Route 50, start­ing in Tal­bot County and pass­ing the torch to other of­fi­cers near the Queen Anne’s/Tal­bot county line.

The fire mar­shals helped raise funds to sup­port the Spe­cial Olympics.

The mis­sion of the Law En­force­ment Torch Run for Spe­cial Olympics is to in­crease aware­ness and raise funds for the Spe­cial Olympics.

The mis­sion of Spe­cial Olympics is to pro­vide year-round sports train­ing and ath­letic com­pe­ti­tion in a va­ri­ety of Olympic-type sports for peo­ple 8 years of age and older with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties.

The Spe­cial Olympics give them 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.
