SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- The first ever "Run with a Cop" event was held Saturday at Dorris Ranch in Springfield.

The event was sponsored by the Springfield Police Department and the Eugene Police Department.

All the funds raised from Saturday's event goes directly to the Eugene and Springfield Special Olympics Program to be used to provide sports for 350 local athletes.

"We couldn't ask for a better turnout and better weather," said Tiffany Monroe, an organizer of the event. "We had about 25 police officers out there running with another 125 community members so we had a great turnout for today's event."

Monroe said about 150 people registered for the event, and said she hopes it will become an annual event.
