Area Fry’s Fuel Centers and local law enforcement personnel are helping raise money to benefit Special Olympics Arizona during the Fry’s Third Annual Fuel of Dreams.

Members of the Apache Junction Police Department are offering to pump customer’s gas or wash their windshield in exchange for a donation 3-6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, at the Fry’s Fuel Centers at 203 W. Apache Trail.

Supporting local and national causes, like Special Olympics Arizona, that promote the health and welfare of families and citizens in local communities is an important part of the Fry’s Food Stores culture, according to a press release.

The Fry’s Fuel of Dreams event began in 2013 and has since raised over $60,000 for the Law Enforcement Torch Run in its support of Special Olympics Arizona.

The Fry’s Fuel of Dreams event is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign.

LETR, which includes an international series of relay runs and special events like this event, is represented by more than 100,000 law enforcement officers worldwide to help raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics. Members of the AJPD participate annually in the torch run.

The Apache Junction Independent is mailed each month to 35,000 homes.
