Tip_A_Cop_logoThis Saturday, October 21st, several troopers from the Indiana State Police Bremen Post will be raising money for Special Olympics Indiana.  Troopers will be at the Red Robin located at 4010 North Main Street in Mishawaka from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. for the annual Tip-A-Cop event.

The fundraising event is part of the 12th annual nationwide Tip-A-Cop® campaign, presented by the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) to benefit Special Olympics.  More than 400 Red Robin restaurants will once again participate in North America, including 10 stores across Indiana.

As the largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics, the LETR involves more than 100,000 law enforcement members worldwide. All funds raised through Tip-A-Cop® and other LETR campaigns go directly to local programs in states or countries where the funds are generated.

“We are grateful to Red Robin for their years of supporting our efforts to raise money for Special Olympics athletes throughout the state,” said Indiana State Police Master Trooper Tommy Walker, Jr., director of the Indiana LETR. “And to Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter for leading the Indiana State Police’s participation in this outstanding event.”

Special Olympics Indiana is a not-for-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in more than 20 Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, reaching more than 12,000 athletes across Indiana. The organization receives no federal or state appropriated funds, is not a United Way agency, and relies entirely on corporate, civic and individual donations.  For more information about Special Olympics Indiana, call (317) 328-2000 or visit www.soindiana.org.
