The 452d Security Forces Squadron participated in the Southern California Special Olympics Inland Empire Regional Spring Games, “Torch Run”, June 4. The Torch Run is part of the SCSO grass-roots fund raising events that raise public awareness about children with intellectual disabilities through sports training and competition. Every year, hundreds of law enforcement agencies from across the country come together to participate in this charitable event. During this year’s event, the torch was passed from members of the Moreno Valley Police Department to the 452d SFS team, which after completing their 5.2-mile leg in 51-minutes, then passed the torch off to the San Bernardino Sherriff’s Department. Participants in the run included Majs. Ryan Robin and Jason Price; Master Sgts. Javier Murillo, Juan Rodriguez, Jeffrey Dennis and Darryl Heisser; Tech. Sgt. Daniel Armstrong; and Staff Sgts. Mariano Morua and Cesar Gutierrez from the 452d SFS. Maj. Deric Prescott, active duty staff judge advocate; Senior Master Sgt. Jeffrey Feller, 701st Combat Operations Squadron; and Airman 1st Class Jonathan Hueso, 452 Civil Engineer Squadron, also ran as part of the Security Forces team. Torch Run support drivers included Marvin Tucker, Staff Sgt. Timothy Yoder, Senior Airman David Adolfo from 452d Mission Support Group.
