CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham Township Police Department and Chatham High School students and staff got together on Friday morning to raise money for the Special Olympics of New Jersey with the Torch Run.

Chatham Township Patrolman Muta Blanford and Detective Anthony LoPorto helped carry the Olympic-like torch on the run that covered just under five miles. The run began and ended at Cougar Field, with participation from CHS Assistant Principal Lori Gironda, Superintendent Dr. Michael LaSusa and about 25 Chatham High students and staff.

The first Torch Run in New Jersey was held in 1984 and has raised $3 million for the Special Olympics of New Jersey since then.
