In an effort to provide bonus coverage and community awareness, Team Observer is proud to partner with the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police, SCIT Public Relations and Special Olympics Michigan in support of MPHS Seniors Courtney Ehren and Summer Cotsman promoting their upcoming Mt. Pleasant Dodgeball Tournament at MPHS on Saturday, May 9th.
“We welcome an opportunity to support our local youth and commend Courtney and Summer as they work on their Senior Project. The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police has supported the Law Enforcement Torch Run efforts for many years,” Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Police Captain Donielle Bannon said. “We have many Tribal members and employees that participate in the Special Olympic events and the dodgeball tournament is another way that the community can join in and show their support.”
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest grassroots fundraising effort for Special Olympics International. The two main goals of the Law Enforcement Torch Run are to raise funds and create awareness for the athletes who participate in Special Olympics Michigan. As Michigan's Special Olympics program continues to grow, more funding is needed to support the athletes and their families because there is no cost to participate. This is where the support of the law enforcement community becomes crucial. By getting more involved in Michigan's Torch Run program you can help raise funds and create awareness for our athletes.
SCIT Public Relations Director Frank Cloutier is working with Migizi Marketing Director Frederick Kuhlman in coordinating the support of the Special Olympics Michigan collaborative outreach.
"We appreciate our Law Enforcement Torch Run support immensely," said Lois Arnold, President and CEO of Special Olympics Michigan. "The money raised has an amazing and positive impact on the lives of our athletes and their families."
