Township Delegation Raises $3,500 In Law Enforcement Torch Run


Township police, dispatchers and fire inspectors before they began their leg of the 2015 Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

About 30 township police officers, dispatchers and fire inspectors took part June 12 in a leg of the 2015 Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics.

“This is probably the most we’ve had come out,” said township police Det. Kevin Fitzharris, the township’s organizer for the event.

The run is held by law enforcement groups across the country to raise funds for the Special Olympics. This is the township’s 10th year participating, Fitzharris said.

Fitzharris said between $3,000 and $3,500 was raised by donations.

“It’s for a great cause,” he said. “The businesses in town were very cooperative, and some officers donated their own money.”

The township’s leg was about 7.2 miles, from Route 27 and Bennington Parkway to the Princeton Wine Press on Rt. 27.
