[ARCHIVED] Police Race To The Finish To Help Special Olympics

Law Enforcement Torch Run

People looking to make a charitable donation during the holidays can consider supporting the Geneva Police Department's Law Enforcement Torch Run For Special Olympics.

In 2023, Geneva Police raised $44,350 through various platforms including the Polar Plunge, Tip-A-Cop, Cop On A Rooftop, and the annual BBQ lunch. Police are hoping to reach the $45,000 fundraising milestone and would appreciate the public's support for this worthy cause.

The easiest way to contribute would be to purchase merchandise online from the Special Olympics Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run Apparel Store. When checking out, customers are asked to select the "Geneva PD" as their local agency.

People looking to make a straight donation to the Geneva Police Department's mission (via credit card) can contact Sgt. Brad Jerdee by calling 630-232-4736 or sending him an email.

Purchases and donations are due Friday, Dec. 8 to be counted toward Geneva's 2023 fundraising goal.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is a collaborative effort from officers across the nation to raise money for Special Olympics. The Torch Run has raised more than $1 billion since its inception in 1981.

The Geneva Police Department thanks everyone who has contributed to the Torch Run's success this year.
