Goffstown police to raise funds for Special Olympics
Members of the Goffstown Police Department will be jogging through town collecting money on June 26 to benefit the 2013 Special Olympics.
“A police cruiser will be escorting Team Uncanoonuc from business to business,” said Goffstown police Detective Jason Ouellette. “All businesses are aware we are coming and some have checks all ready for us.”
Chris Krajenka, former New Boston Police Chief, spearheaded the Goffstown Torch Run while he was serving as an officer in Goffstown, and continued the fundraiser in New Boston, said Ouellette. When Kajenka left Goffstown police, Ouellette took the helm to make sure the fundraiser continued.
Ouellette said businesses have come to expect the officers jogging door to door and have been supportive of the program.
But, donors don’t have to wait for officers to stop by. There are two drop-off boxes located at the Pizza Market and the Goffstown Police Department for residents and businesses wishing to donate.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is celebrating its 29th year of raising money so athletes can compete in the program, and spreading awareness of Special Olympics throughout New Hampshire.
