SENC – Pender County Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics
Pender County Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Saturday, May 6th
This will be a 5 Mile route starting from the Pender County Sheriff Annex (15060 US17 Hampstead, NC) and ending at the NHRMC Emergency Department North at 151 Scotts Hill Medical Drive Wilmington, NC.
The run will cover a total of 5 miles, but participants do not need to run the entire distance as there will be Prison Emergency Response vehicles & bus traveling with our group for transportation. You can chose how many miles you want to run, whether it be 1 mile or all 5 miles. We ask that everyone start the run together and then again at the last 0.25 as a group, so we can get a great group photo of all the runners. We will be joining representatives from DPS- SHP, DPS- Prison (Pender CI & New Hanover CC), Pender County Sheriff, Burgaw Police Department, and Surf City Police Department. Only members of law enforcement, military and Special Olympics Athletes may carry the torch. Athlete riders who are also Special Olympics athletes are invited to participate. There are no team pairings as everyone will be switching off pushing our athlete riders so that anyone who wants the opportunity to push may take turns doing so.
All participants/volunteers must check in at the Volunteer tent at the Pender County Annex, turn in the mandatory waiver forms and pick up your t-shirt. All participants and volunteers are also required to purchase a 2023 Torch Run t-shirt ($20) and wear it for the run that day. Shirts will be available for pickup Saturday morning. (Cash, check & Square available).
