Kendall County Sheriff’s Office helped raised over $10,000 for Special Olympics Illinois in 2016.
The Sheriff's Office raised $9,222 in the following six fundraising events: Polar Plunge, Dunkin’ Donuts Cop on a Roof, Torch Run, Culver’s Butter Burgers and Badges, Summer BBQ, and Red Robin Tip-A-Cop.
Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois is the single largest year-round fundraising event benefiting Special Olympics Illinois.
In addition, the Sheriff's Office raised $1,189 for local Special Olympics teams during the 2016 National Night Out baseball game. These funds were distributed among three teams in Kendall County and will help cover the cost of uniforms, equipment, transportation, and other expenses needed to participate in the games.
Sheriff Dwight Baird thanked the community for their partnership in raising funds for such a worthy cause.
