Eating sandwiches and supporting a great cause? That's something we can all rally behind.
The Oswego Police Department will be participating in the Local Law Enforcement Torch Run of Illinois for Special Olympics in June where about 3,000 law enforcement officers carry the Flame of Hope to start the opening ceremonies for the Games in Normal, Illinois.
The Oswego Police earlier participated for the tenth time in the Polar Plunge and now are working with the Oswego Jersey Mike's to raise more funds. The Torch Run raised $2.98 million in 2012 and their goal is to reach $3 million in 2013.
From April 22 to April 28, the Oswego Jersey Mike’s Subs will donate $1 for every Regular Size sub that is purchased.
All that is required is that you bring in a copy of this letter (attached PDF) or mention that you are supporting the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois and the donation will be made.
Those wishing to become a sponsor for the department's Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics can contact Connie Jackson or Cherese Spears at 630-551-7300.
