Lower Paxton Police raise $385 in Capital Area Region Law Enforcement Torch Run
A dozen Lower Paxton Township police officers raised $385 for the Special Olympics during a Capital Area Region Law Enforcement Torch Run segment from Camp Hill to the Capitol in mid-September.
The officers – led by a motorcycle honor guard and joined by law enforcement from across the Midstate – were part of an annual event held across the country. The torch run raised money to give children and adults with intellectual disabilities a chance to train and compete in the Special Olympics.
“It’s a great way to give back to the community,” said Lower Paxton Police Corporal Walter Cook, who organized the department’s team. “It’s a fun event that supports the kids and shows police in a positive light.’’
