Leutenint Scott Trembly with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office has been part of the Special Olympics Torch Run for over a decade and tells KSAL News he’s focused on athletes, “It’s not about who raises the most money, runs the farthest or whatever.” he said.
“It’s about doing all we can do for the special athletes.”
Beginning at 2pm Friday, a host of local law enforcement members will be gathering at the starting line to do their part in raising money and awareness for Special Olympics.
