Chief “Yogi” Yother is coordinating the run and has challenged all Chiefs across the state to contribute a minimum of $100 and officers to donate at least $10. Click below for Yother’s statement:

Casey spent 16 years as the Nashville chief and 38 years with the department and Special Olympics is something he feels strongly about.
