California Institution for Men (CIM) teamed up with Chino Police Department for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run benefiting Special Olympics.

This year’s group comprised 14 CIM staff members and eight Chino Police staff. Together, they ran 4.9 miles in formation Nov. 1.

After making it through the streets of Chino, they passed the torch to the Montclair Police Department.

CIM also donated $13,788 to the Torch Run in support of the Special Olympics.

“It is always great to see staff come together for an excellent cause,” said Warden James S. Hill.
