Military, police, and community unite at KG Law Enforcement Run

It was a perfect storm of community outreach for a noble cause. On Thursday, local law enforcement, the military and concerned citizens participated in the Third Annual King George County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Run.

Starting from the King George Sheriff’s Office at 10445 Government Center Blvd., and ending at King George High School (KGHS), the sea of athletes ran 2.7 miles. The run culminated with the lighting of the Olympic Torch in the center of the KGHS stadium field.

Race organizer, King George Deputy Rod Shriver coordinated the event that featured over 275 men and women running in formation while shouting cadences. He also thanked the local businesses that contributed to the effort with heartfelt donations: “From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you,” Shriver said. “We have the largest run in the state. For a county as small as we are, every year it gets bigger and bigger. The more people who see us run their neighborhoods while making noise, encourages them to get involved.”
During the opening pre-run ceremony, King George Sheriff Steve Dempsey praised the unselfish efforts of volunteers throughout the state. “We cannot tell you how much we appreciate you, along with everybody else for supporting our run,” Dempsey said. “Just being here today, makes it exciting.”

Rappahannock Regional Special Olympics Director Jim Garrett was also present during the event’s festivities.

More than 2,000 law enforcement officers throughout Virginia set aside their daily duties to play a role in the Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run. The president of the Special Olympics said it’s not about the money; it’s the magic that we created, and the heart of our special athletes.

Notable Torch Run sponsors included:  BB&T, NARFE, Sheetz, CVS, Chick-fil-a, Dahlgren Subway, King George Subway, Dominoes, Gautier’s Auto Body, EXIT Realty Expertise, A Unique House, The Dance Box, C&S Auto, Lock-It-Up Self Storage, Peoples Community Bank, Walker Sand & Stone, Big Dog, Roma’s Pizza, Radley Automotive Group, Rick’s on the River, Rosner Ford, Rocky Top Embroidery, Walmart and CBIRF.

Special check presentations featured Rosner Ford General Manager, Rick Evans; Rick’s on the River owners, Mr. & Mrs. Thacker; and Mr. & Mrs. Coleman of Roma’s Pizza.

Inspired by the need to provide awareness for children with special needs, King George Family YMCA Executive Director Elizabeth Clark said, “When you work them, you see that they get out there and move; it inspires you to want to run for them.”

On June 6-8, thousands of athletes from across the state will compete in the annual Virginia Special Olympics statewide competition in Richmond.
