Help LCSO raise money for Special Olympics Georgia

Daphne Lindsey Daphne Lindsey
First responders in Lee County are teaming up raise money for the Special Olympics.

The Lee County Sheriff's office is hosting its 2nd annual September to Remember 1st Responder 5-k and walk Saturday, September 13. The money raised will help fund the athletes in Special Olympics Georgia.

Last year they had 22 runners pre-register and 88 compete on race day.

"This year we've had 44 already pre-register. So we've doubled on the pre-registered. So hopefully we'll double Saturday also," said SGT Daphne Lindsey, with the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Awards and door prizes will be given out.

The race starts at the Lee County YMCA at 7:30 am Saturday, September 13. Registration begins at 6:30 am.
