Law enforcement raise money for Special Olympics

March 15, 2003

Albany- Albany and Dougherty County Police and the Sheriff's Departments teamed up for the 2003 Law Enforcement Special Olympic Torch Run Fundraiser.

Dozens of venders came out to the North Washington Flea Market to raise money for the athletes so that they can participate in the Atlanta Summer Games in May.

Corporal Arthur Butler of the Albany Police Department says it takes approximately $175 to send each of the athletes to Atlanta.

Ten percent of each vender's proceeds will go to the fund. Each law enforcement agency has also raised money. They hope to raise $475,000 before the Torch Run in May.
