Run With the Cops raises money for Special Olympics Wisconsin

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW)- On Thursday local law enforcement teamed up with the community to raise money for Special Olympics Wisconsin through the 3rd Annual Run With the Cops event.

Special Olympics chapters all across the globe partner up with law enforcement to put on the fundraiser.  Organizers in Eau Claire said it's a great way to interact with the officers through silly events, like the donut eating contest, and allows the community to see officers in a positive way, out of the law enforcement spotlight.

Organizers said over 150 runners were pre-registered for the event, and more were expected to register prior to the race.  They hope to raise over $6,000, all of which goes directly to local Special Olympics athletes.
