To the editor:

I would like to take this time to give the citizens, businesses and civic organizations that supported this year's Law Enforcement Torch Run for Utah Special Olympics a pat on the back. It was truly a sight to behold. Teamwork, love and camaraderie were in abundance as we all worked together towards the common goal of making life better for our "Special Olympian" friends.Every law enforcement community in Salt Lake County was represented - all volunteers to serve their community. Civic organizations and businesses, too numerous to mention here, echoed the sentiment of our law enforcement family: "He ain't heavy, he's my brother."
