Algonquin, LITH Cops To Hit The Boards For Special Olympics

May 14th the Algonquin and LITH police departments will be playing each other in a charity  basketball game to benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois. The event's at Jacobs High School at 10 am.

There's a $5 entry fee for kids 10 years and over and a 50/50 raffle at the event.  Special Olympic Torch Run hats and shirts will be on sale, not to mention raffle tickets (Win a Harley)  also available to purchase on site.  All proceeds go to the Illinois Special Olympics which provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Nearly 21,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities and more than 6,000 young athletes ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities now train and compete throughout Illinois via the program.
