Well the Quincy Police Department personnel and volunteers from the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association will be at the intersections of 18th and State and 24th and Harrison in Quincy on Friday, July 20th from 7:00-8:30 a.m. and again from 4:00-5:30 p.m. collecting money for Special Olympics Illinois.  They will be asking people to donate their cold hard cash – spare change or the kind that folds (ones, fives, tens, twenties).    While supplies last, in return for their donation, a Torch Run Supporter static window cling will be given to donors to place on their car or home to proudly display their support of the athletes here in Illinois! As you enter those intersections, please give what you can when you are approached tomorrow.

 

The Special Olympics movement began with 1,000 athletes at Soldier Field in Chicago on July 20, 1968, and today there are nearly 3 million athletes in more than 180 countries around the world!
