DAVIESS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Some Daviess County deputies and firefighters started their Wednesday morning off with a 14-mile run.

It’s not the first time the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office laced up the running shoes for a long journey into town. Deputies hold the run every year, starting at retired Sheriff Keith Cain’s house and ending at the Daviess County Courthouse.

Sgt. Tyler Free says the reason behind the event keeps them running year after year.

The main thing we want to bring is awareness for the Special Olympics,” Free said. “You know the athletes in the Special Olympics, they work so hard to prepare for their athletic events. This is just to bring awareness for them.”

Six runners made that journey this year.
