Deputies Support Special Olympics & Men’s Health
If you notice a change in the appearance of Mason County Sheriff’s Offices Deputies, it is for two great causes. From now until the 31st of December, Deputies and staff have the opportunity to wear jeans and sport beards in a fun effort to raise awareness for men’s health and Special Olympics.
Movember- also known as No-Shave November or Moustache November, is meant to bring awareness to men’s health. To help raise that awareness, instead of wearing a colored ribbon, men are encouraged to grow a moustache as their “ribbon” reminding each of us of the importance of men’s health.
Additionally, Sheriff’s Office Deputies and staff may elect to wear jeans in support for Special Olympics. With the 50th Anniversary of Special Olympics occurring in conjunction with the 2018 International games being hosted in the Greater Seattle Area, the Sheriff’s Office has started the 2018 fundraising campaign early. For a small donation, participating Deputies and staff may wear jeans as a part of their duty uniform to support Special Olympics.
Sheriff Salisbury recently traveled to Nashville where the Sheriff’s Office was recognized as one of the most notable Law Enforcement Torch Run programs in the state. With the generous outpouring of support from our local community for the Torch Run last year, Sheriff Salisbury wanted to kick off the 2018 season early with the Deputy “dress down” event. Sheriff Salisbury said, “This event has been something I have wanted to do for a long time. I am pleased to do so in support of two worthy causes.”
The Sheriff’s Office is always accepting donations to support Special Olympics. If you want to donate, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 360.427.9670×313 for more information. Keep checking back for more events and the 2018 Law Enforcement Torch Run kickoff.
