Law enforcement officers and Special Olympics Indiana teamed up with 10 Red Robin restaurants to benefit more than 11,000 Hoosier athletes with intellectual disabilities. Tip-A-Cop took place for eight hours on Oct. 18.
Law enforcement officers, joined by Special Olympics athletes, traded badges for aprons as they collected tip donations for Special Olympics Indiana.
“The continued and growing support of the Indiana State Police has been remarkable,” Special Olympics Indiana CEO Mike Furnish stated. “Through their work with this event, Red Robin has also become a fantastic partner.”
Indiana State troopers along with local city and county officers participated in the Tip-A–Cop campaign at 9965 N. Michigan Rd., Carmel; 14599 Clay Terrace Blvd., Carmel; and 13215 Harrell Pkwy., Noblesville.
Law Enforcement officers and Special Olympic athletes working these three locations collected $5,374. All donated money will be utilized for Special Olympic activities and athletes in Indiana. Throughout its history, the Tip-A-Cop fundraising event, with various restaurant partners, has generated more than $2.5 million for Special Olympics.
