Officers will run four miles every four hours throughout the 48-hour period, and they are seeking sponsorships to help. You can sponsor an officer for one leg of the relay for $50 or sponsor an officer for all 12 legs for $600. Members of the Eddy County Regional SWAT Team will be the participants, and the event will begin at noon on April 9 through April 11.
If you are interested in sponsoring, please call Cpl. Orlando Moreno at the Carlsbad Police Department’s main number, 885-2111. He’s hoping to put together banners for all of the major sponsors. The members of our local law enforcement community have been strong supporters of the Special Olympics, and we hope you’ll help with this great cause. Our local Special Olympians held virtual events to help them get through the COVID-19 outbreak, but they are certainly eager to return to regular events.
