Police run with Special Olympics torch
Record Observer - 6/8/2018
STEVENSVILLE - The Special Olympics torch officially arrived Wednesday, June 6, in Queen Anne's County, with numerous runners from the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office ushering it along.
The group of runners were led by Maj. Dwayne Boardman, chief deputy of the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office, along with other officers, in a route that took the torch from the Kent Island Volunteer Fire Department to the Kent Island Business Park.
"We've supported the Special Olympics for years, and it's an honor," Boardman said. "[Our partnership] with them just shows that we care, and we love to support them and be at the events themselves when they're competing."
Lauren Moses, the public information officer for the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office, echoed the major's sentiments, sayiing the main goal is to raise funds for those with special needs with the help of the community and law enforcement.
"It's great to have the community and the police come together and support a really good cause," Moses said.
