The Kennewick Police Department has raised more than $70,000 so far to benefit Special Olympics of Washington athletes, according to police officials.
Recent donors include Money Tree of Kennewick, which presented a $2,000 donation Thursday to Chief Ken Hohenberg.
Last year, the department raised more than $80,000. This year's campaign runs through Aug. 30.
The department will partner with Kennewick's Gold's Gym for "Run from the Cops" 5K fun run at midnight July 14, to raise funds for the campaign.
