Canton Police Officer Will Light Special Olympics Cauldron

Canton Police Officer Judi Solly has finished the 2024 Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign with the highest amount of donations raised
in the entire state of Ohio! Officer Solly is part of a team of dedicated officers and dispatchers who participate in this fund-raising drive annually. This year, the police department partnered with members of Canton Fire and raised $7,501.00 as the “Canton Safety Forces Team” for this great cause.

Officer Solly’s efforts alone netted more than half of that total ($4,178.00).  The 2024 Torch Run will take place on Thursday, June 27th and members of the team will run in
support of these exceptional athletes. Officer Solly’s extraordinary accomplishment will take her to Columbus on June 28th to run the final leg into Ohio Stadium, kicking off the games by assisting a Special Olympic Athlete in the lighting of the Cauldron during opening ceremonies.
