Chesapeake Sheriff's Office raises $35,000 with Their Creative Fundraiser

Each year, local law enforcement come together for Dancing With The Athletes.

Special Olympics Virginia Athletes traded in their athletic shoes for dancing shoes as they partnered with members of Law Enforcement and Fire Departments from Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, and Norfolk.

Every Sunday for the last three months, these 13 teams were learning and practicing their choreography for the Dancing with the Athletes event. On top of spending countless hours dancing, they were also busy raising funds to reach their team fundraising goal and collectively surpassed the $30,000 event goal and raised over $35,000 for Special Olympics Virginia.

Thank you to Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office for hosting an unforgettable night on the dance floor and for all of the support they provide year-round for Special Olympics Virginia.
