2017 Law Enforcement Torch Run
Planning has begun for the 2017 Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run which will take place in September 2017. The run will start at the Gerrish Township Municipal Center (with registration at the Gerrish Township Police Department parking lot) and end at the South Higgins Lake State Park boat launch area. As in the past there will be transportation back to your vehicle after the run and refreshments will be served. Once we have our Gerrish Township Community Run date set, we will update our information. It usually falls during the same time each year, the second week in September. Watch for more information, registration forms, etc.
Pre-run shirts are available as a fundraiser for Michigan Special Olympics for $10.00 each. They are available in sizes Small – XX Large and can be purchased at the Gerrish Township Police Department. ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SHIRTS AND THE RUN WILL GO TO MICHIGAN SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Thank you to all the participants, volunteers and local law enforcement members that participated in our Annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics that took place on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016. We changed the run route up a bit this year and started at the Gerrish Township Municipal Center and ended at the South Higgins Lake State Park boat launch area where refreshments and hot dogs were served. Transportation was provided from the South State Park back to the Gerrish Township Municipal Center parking lot. We had 64 participants including the Kirtland Community College Regional Police Academy Cadets and a team from the Roscommon County Department of Health and Human Services. Our community run is one in a series of more than 2-dozen community runs that were scheduled this September around the state during Law Enforcement Torch Run Week!
We are proud to announce that we raised approximately $2400.00 and a major portion of those proceeds goes directly to our local Special Olympic athletes!
Thank you for your Support and we look forward to hosting our next Annual LETR Gerrish Community Run in September of 2017.
