This Sunday June 4, 2017, at 8:00am, our Police Force will take part in the annual Torch Run. The run will begin at the Barrington Hills Police Department at 8:00 a.m. and end 18 miles later at Knox Park, in McHenry, Illinois

The Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest year-round fundraising vehicle benefiting Special Olympics Illinois and has two goals: to raise money and to gain awareness for the athletes who participate in Special Olympics Illinois.

Since 2015, the Illinois Torch Run has consistently raised $4 million for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.

Donations can be made payable to “Special Olympics Illinois” and sent to the Barrington Hills Police Department – Attention Torch Run, 112 Algonquin Road, Barrington Hills, Illinois 60010. To volunteer for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, or if you would like additional information, please contact Sergeant Ron Riedel, at the Barrington Hills Police Department, 847-551-3006, or email at rriedel@vbhpd.net.

Additionally, if you would like to purchase a Harley Davidson Raffle ticket for $10.00, please contact Sergeant Ron Riedel. The winner of the Harley Davidson Raffle will receive a 2017 HD Street Glide, valued at more than $20,000. The drawing will be held on Friday, October 20, 2017, at 1:00p.m., at which time six tickets (finalists) will be drawn. One of the finalists will win the new Harley and the others will receive a big-screen HDTV, valued at $700/each, at an event to be announced later.
