South Brunswick police officers take part in the Special Olympics Torch Run on June 11.

Each South Brunswick police officer who participated in the Special Olympics Torch Run on June 11 fundraised on his/her own from family, friends and businesses.

The officers ran the regular highway route, starting from the police department on Ridge Road, but continued on a second run between schools with Life Skills students, from Ridge Road to Route 522 to Kingston Lane.

Sgt. Nathan LaBuda, one of the main organizers, said, “I can’t tell you how many times I have been told by school staff, administrators and parents that the Torch Run events at the schools are the highlight of the year for the Life Skills students and staff.”
