Newark PD bikes the bridges for Special Olympics
Submitted By Newark PD
On June 9, 2013 members of the Newark Police Department participated in the 2013 Bike the Bridges Ride to raise funds for Special Olympics. This program provides opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities and our officers wanted to show their support by taking part in the 25-mile fundraising effort. NPD Officer Jeff Neithercutt led the effort.
If you would like to support Officer Neithercutt's effort, please visit the following link:
Special Olympics provides year round sports training and competition opportunities for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, but is much more than a sports program. It is training for life, empowering individuals with self-confidence and self-esteem that carry over to their everyday lives. What is most amazing is that participation in Special Olympics is free to everyone; over 15,700 Special Olympics athletes in Northern California!

Thank you so much for your support. Together, we can make a difference!
