Chesapeake Sheriff’s Office Dancing with the Athletes

The Chesapeake Sheriff's Office raised over $25,000 at their Sixth Annual "Dancing with the Athletes" competition. Like Dancing with the Stars, the competition paired nine Chesapeake Sheriff's Office deputies, two Chesapeake Police Department officers, and one Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office corporal with 12 Special Olympic Athletes for freestyle and hip-hop dance routines. The event is a big-hearted fundraiser for Special Olympics Virginia. In a tight competition, CPD Officer Dayna Tucker and Special Olympics athlete Javonte Riddick took home the "Mirrorball Trophy." CSO Deputy Marissa Walker and Special Olympics Athlete Chad Jackson were close runners-up. Awards were given for best "Freestyle Performance," "Hip Hop Performance," "Best Costume," "Highest Fundraiser," "Most Determined," and "Most Spirited." Special thanks to Unlimited Dance Dynamics for choreographing the routines, Men's Warehouse
