Each year teams fielded by local law enforcement agencies, businesses, and community members tackle an extraordinary challenge to help the Sierra Vista Police Department raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Arizona.
The 14th Annual Bearcat Pull for Specail Olympics will take place on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 9:00 a.m. in Veterans Memorial Park. Teams of five to 10 people will race to pull the police department’s 18,500 pound LENCO Bearcat a full 25 feet. They get two chances and the team with the best time in each category wins, with first, second, and third place trophies being given out in each of four categories: Ironman (5 members), Men (up to eight members), Women (up to 10 members), and co-ed (five members of one gender and four of the other).
Teams that register by Sept. 1 will receive T-shirts for team members as part of their registration fee. The fees can be paid directly by team members, through fundraising efforts, or by finding sponsors. The registration fee is $175 for Ironman and $200 for all other categories.
The Sierra Vista Police Department is typically among the top 10 fundraising agencies in the state for the Special Olympics each year and the Annual Bearcat Pull for Special Olympics is its signature fundraiser.
