Law Enforcement Torch Run
Saturday, June 6th, 2009 10:00 AMJoin fellow runners from the NYPD Running Club for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. This is a ceremonial run of approximately one mile at a slow jogging pace. The run will begin at TD Bank, located at 56-50 Main Street Flushing Queens, on the corner of Booth Memorial and Main Street. It will finish at Queens College for the start of the New York State Special Olympics Metro Games. The run will begin at approximately 9:30. Once at Queens College we'll be joining Special Olympic athletes to carry the Special Olympics torch into Queens College to light the Special Olympic Flame and begin the Opening Ceremonies of the NYS Special Olympics Metro Tournment. The Torch Run will conclude at approximately 10:30, but if you wish to stick around to volunteer at the games your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Each runner is asked to raise $100 in donations but no runner will be turned away if they don't raise the money but still wish to participate . Each participant will receive an official Law Enforcement Torch Run tee shirt which must be worn during the run. You'll also receive an NYPD Running Club shirt.
