Special Olympics Torch Run

UPD has begun raising funds for the Special Olympics Torch Run of Northern California. We plan to host a Tip a Cop event and several other smaller fund raising mechanisms for this worthwhile cause. Details and a donation web page will be set up soon for easy processing of donations until June 19, 2014.  

On June 19, 2014 several members of the UPD family will participate in the Torch Run here in San Jose.  Please consider a small donation for a very worthwhile cause.  For more information, please contact Captain Alan Cavallo at (408) 924-6551.
