The Cops and Jocks fundraiser for Special Olympics Wyoming started in 2006 as a means to further promote the Law Enforcement Torch Run. Sheridan County Sheriff's Deputy Boot Hill further explains the event.
Along with Casper and Cheyenne, Sheridan will be hosting their own Cops and Jocks fundraiser today from 9 am to 3 pm in front of Wal-Mart. The “Flame of Hope” will be in Sheridan Monday morning as the 2011 Law Enforcement Torch Run will be in Sheridan to kick off the Sheridan leg of the run. The Torch Run will begin at 8 am Monday outside of the Sheridan County Sheriff's Office.
