ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Roanoke City Sheriff’s Office took part in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Virginia.

Each year, agencies across the country run, bike, jog or walk to help raise awareness and donations for the organization.

Sheriff Antonio Hash says he’s proud of the men and women who ran as a way to give back to their community.

“We take this very seriously every day to do the job, and show up but we count it as an honor and a privilege to be a part of these other agencies who are taking care of other entities around our world—around our city to make the lives of others great. We are very appreciative of that,” said Antonio Hash, Roanoke City’s sheriff.

The Roanoke-Durham School Services partnered with the sheriff’s office by providing a bus to help with their 8-mile run.
