They’ll be running through the streets of Salina on Wednesday – carrying a torch and shining a light on special athletes in Kansas.
Deputy Scott Trembly with the Saline County Sheriff’s Office has been part of the Special Olympics Torch Run for ten years 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 3pm tomorrow, Trembley and a host of other local law enforcement members will be gathering at the starting line to do their part in raising money for Special Olympics.
The run kicks off with a brief ceremony at the Dairy Queen located at 321 North 9th Street at 3pm Wednesday and will wind its way to Jerry Ivey Park.
Deputy Trembly adds that anyone can support Special Olympics by purchasing a T-Shirt at the event.
The Special Olympics Summer Games will be held in Wichita June 6th, 7th and 8th.
