The Arizona Law Enforcement Torch Run is fast approaching and has been scheduled for Saturday , 2016 from 8:00 a.m. to Noon at Centennial Park in Kingman located at 3333 Harrison Street.
The event will start with a 1 mile walk around the park with Special Olympics Athletes leading the way with the torch. A 5K run for members of Public Safety and the Citizens of Kingman will be held after the walk.
Trophies for the fastest runner in the men’s and woman’s classes with be awarded. A $10 fee will be asked of all those wishing to participate in the event. All participants will need to sign a release of liability form. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. with the 1 mile walk starting at approximately 8:00 a.m.
In connection with this run we will be hosting a Public Safety Awareness Event. At this time the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Adult Detention Center, Arizona Department of Public Safety, GEO Group Arizona State Prison, Kingman Police Department, and the Kingman Elks Club are joining forces to make this years event the largest fundraising event Kingman has held for Special Olympics. Public Safety Vehicles will be on display for your viewing. Booths with handouts will also be available. Food will be provided for a small donation.
The goal is to raise money through donations to Special Olympics. With this in mind we will also be having a Dunk Tank and a Pie in the Face booth. Members of the Public will have the opportunity to try and dunk or throw a pie in the face of a member of Public Safety. We will be asking a $1 donation for each attempt. Donations will be accepted during the event with all money going to Special Olympics Arizona.
