Quincy, Fla. -- Law enforcement officers in Gadsden County took to the streets yesterday, only this time they weren't enforcing the law, they were running for a good cause.
A torch run to help Gadsden County special olympians compete in the state games in Orlando was held yesterday morning.
Officers were joined by members of the public and the special olympians in the run.
"It feels real good," Richard Crutcher, Gadsden Corrections Officer, said. "And obviously the community feels the same way because they're all here. We have over 100 special olympians here and we have about 150 to 200 citizens and law enforcement."
The goal was to raise $5,000 to send the special Olympians to the state games.
So far, about $4,000 has been raised. Donations are still being accepted.
