The members of the Kennesaw Police Department are proud to participate in the Law Enforcement Torch Run. The purpose of the Torch Run is to raise funds to support the programs of Special Olympics Georgia.

     The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendships with their families, other Special Olympic athletes and the community.

     Please help us support the Law Enforcement Torch Run and keep bringing joy and excitement to the thousands of athletes who participate in the programs of Special Olympics Georgia each year.
