    On June 11th the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting the annual Maryland Law Enforcement Torch Run Event for Special Olympics.  This year, the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a PUBLIC run/walk 5K starting at the Calvert Marine Museum, Solomons, Maryland!  Law Enforcement agencies, to include Calvert County Sheriff’s Deputies, Maryland State Police Troopers, Fire Marshal’s Officers, and several others, will be running the 5K in support of the Special Olympics.  Officers come together as athletes to support the Special Olympics and the positive impact is extremely rewarding!

    Our goal this year is to increase the public’s awareness and support of the Special Olympics. Please sign up for the run/walk 5K at   Entrants will receive a Torch Run T-shirt upon registering for the 5K.  However, if you would like a hat or another T-shirt to support Special Olympics, please contact Ms. Sherry Draheim at the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office (410-535-2800).
