About the RO8K
The RO8K Run is named in honor of Sergeant Ruben Orozco,
who passed away in 2005. He started his career as a detention
officer, and rose through the ranks to Sergeant during his
25 years in law enforcement. Sergeant Orozco had been
involved with Special Olympics Texas for 13 years, and
helped coordinate the Law Enforcement Torch Run in El Paso.
Continue his legacy and promote dignity, equality and
opportunity for all people.

About Special Olympics Texas
Your involvement supports year-round sports training
and competition for children and adults with intellectual
disabilities in the Greater El Paso area. A partnership with
Special Olympics Texas has a powerful impact - changing the
lives and perceptions of your employees, your company and
your community. Of every dollar raised, $0.92 goes directly
to programs for Special Olympics Texas athletes. Thank you
for your support. Together we promote dignity, equality and
opportunity for all people.
• Special Olympics athletes perform better in school, enjoy
stronger family relationships, make more friends, and are
more prepared to live and work in their communities
• 44% of Special Olympics athletes become employed,
compared to only 28% of individuals with intellectual
disabilities who do not participate in Special Olympics.
• 92¢ of every dollar raised goes directly to support programs
for SOTX athletes.
• 100% of funds raised locally by SOTX remain in that community.
