Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is a Huge Success

torch run group shot.jpgOn June 5, 22 Eastern students, faculty and staff, along with members of the Willimantic Police Department, participated in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. The event raised $1,400 for Special Olympics Connecticut.

Eastern students, faculty and staff cheered on the runners as they took off from the Eastern Police Department parking lot; wound their way through campus past the Foster Clock Tower; and then hit the streets of Willimantic.

Eastern Police Chief Jeffrey Garewski thanked everyone who participated in the race, extending a special thanks to Lieutenant Tom Madera and Officer Dave DeNunzio for their planning and dedication to the Torch Run. Anyone interested in making a donation to the Special Olympics Connecticut Torch Run should contact Officer David DeNunzio or Lt. Tom Madera at the Eastern Police Department at (860) 465-5310.
