Torch Run: A Fitting Tribute

Lining up at APD HQ 111 Main Street,  Saturday 6:55 PM

The spectacular Saturday weather continued into the early evening making the three mile jaunt from Amherst Police Department HQ to Kennedy dorm at Southwest UMass ever so bearable -- especially with 50 other friends, family and co-workers along for the run.


Umass roundabout was no problem for the pack

Pack escorted along University Drive 

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is more than just a special benefit to raise money for Special Olympics -- it's a concrete example of how cops care about their community.

And the power of camaraderie.
