Unify Alaskans statewide. That is the vision of the 2014 Alaska Law Enforcement Torch Run and Pledge Drive. The Torch Run will take place simultaneously in 13 communities across the state, beginning at 10 am on Saturday, May 17, when a cadre of Law Enforcement officers will lead the 5k (3.1 miles) family fun run in the following communities: Anchorage, Barrow, Delta Junction, Fairbanks, Homer, Juneau, Kenai, Ketchikan, Kodiak, Mat-Su Valley, Seward, Sitka, and Valdez. It is expected to be the larges simultaneous multi-community running even held in Alaska this year, with a goal to raise $150,000 in pledges for Special Olympics Alaska communities.
Orchestrated by the Alaska Law Enforcement community, the Torch Run and Pledge Drive is open to both law enforcement officers and the general public. Walkers, runners, joggers, strollers, rollerbladers, and bikers are welcome to join in.
Every dollar goes a long way in support of training and competition programs for over 2000 Alaskan athletes with intellectual disabilities.
