Despite the 90 degree weather, Officers throughout Westchester County carried the Flame of Hope in support and awareness of Special Olympics NY. The run started at the Yonkers Police, 3rd Precinct and ended at Riverfront Park in Peekskill. They are our Guardians of the flame and each and everyone of them ran proudly and effortlessly. Thank you to each and everyone of YOU!
We would also like to thank all who stood outside and cheered them on as they went by, especially Sleepy Hollow Tarrytown Places who had crowds with signs cheering loudly, including Sleepy Hollow High School.
We would also like to thank the local fire departments, Scarsdale, Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow for taking their fire trucks out and having the #AmericanFlag displayed so the officers ran under the flag in honor of our Nation. If I missed one, sorry. Please feel free to let us know!
Thank you also to Waverly Engine Co. No. 1 for opening up you fire dept for our arrival prior to lunch.
Thank you to Elmsford Water Department for opening your doors as well for our arrival at lunch.
We also have groups who come back yearly like ATF, Sing Sing Correctional, DA’s office, and MTA Police. Every year they grow as do all our wonderful Law Enforcement. Thank you!
