Students at Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic School in Brentwood gathered outside on Thursday to watch the Special Olympics Torch Run go past the school.
Detective Nick Nilson, DARE Officer for Saint Mary Magdalen, carried the torch and waved to his students as he passed. Major Jim McIntyre, Officer Paul Clayton and Chief of Police Dan Fitzgerald accompanied the torch through Brentwood.
Officer Clayton and Chief Fitzgerald are Saint Mary Magdalen School parents.
The Law Enforcement Torch Run helps raise awareness and funding to support Special Olympics Missouri’s year-round sports training and athletic competition program for more than 17,000 athletes across the state.
