KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Kalamazoo man is lacing up his shoes and heads to the upper peninsula to join officers on part of their 750-mile relay across the state in support of the Special Olympics of Michigan.
Wednesday, 20-year-old Julian Borst, of Kalamazoo, joined Officer Jeremy Walleman, Trooper Jim Yeager, and Sergeant Mark Bunting in running five miles across the Mackinac Bridge.
