Palmer DOC Staff join Palmer Law Enforcement in Torch Run

Department of Corrections staff joined a field of approximately 150 participants in the annual fund-raising run for Special Olympics. The field raised approximately $7,100 so far for Special Olympics Alaska from the valley event alone. This is now two years in a row where we have had substantial participation and double that of previous years. Our run in the valley was just one of 13 runs held simultaneously around the state that so far this year have raised $82,658.00 for Special Olympics Alaska. We are still waiting for the totals from three of those runs so we very well may have topped $100,000.00 this year. It was great to see DOC out there raising money for such a good cause!
