SJAFB Hosts Law Enforcement Torch Run (PHOTO GALLERY)

The Goldsboro Air Force base hosts a 5K to support North Carolina’s Special Olympic athletes.

The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base held its first ever Law Enforcement Torch Run on Monday, with participants braving the afternoon sun and heat to raise funds for the Special Olympics.

Rob Spatorico is a Captain with the Fayetteville Police Department and he’s also on the North Carolina Law Enforcement Torch Run Council.  He says the Law Enforcement Torch Runs raised over $1.2 million for the 40,000 Special Olympic athletes in North Carolina last year.

Staff Sgt. Michael Barbato from the 4th Security Forces Squadron helped organize Monday’s Law Enforcement Torch Run at Seymour Johnson. He’s hopeful the Torch Run will return to the base next year.

The Torch Run was organized by the 4th Security Forces Squadron at Seymour Johnson.

The Goldsboro Police Department is also holding its Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics this Friday with participants taking off from the GPD station at 8 AM.
