Deputy Dylan Centanino-Sweers recently attended the Special Olympics Washington Winter Games in Wenatchee. He was joined by officers from other local jurisdictions.

The Sheriff’s Office stated, “We were honored that Deputy Centanino-Sweers was chosen to award athletes who placed in their respective sports. As a former Renton Special Olympics track and field coach, he has continued to work closely with the organization.”

The officers were all there to encourage and congratulate the athletes in their respective sports, which included downhill skiing, boarding, cross country, and other winter games. As a matter of fact, thumbs up and high-fives were given to over 1100 athletes in attendance.

In their ongoing effort to support the Special Olympics, Team KCSO recently raised $10,636 in the annual “Polar Plunge” challenge.
