Cop on Top Fundraiser For Special Olympics Returns
Big Island police will again be raising funds for Special Olympics athletes for three days later this week.
After a hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hawai‘i Police Department is proud to sponsor the 19th annual Cop on Top fundraiser for Special Olympics Hawai‘i starting at 7 a.m. from Thursday through Saturday, Aug. 25-27, at the Hilo and Kona Walmart stores.
Law enforcement officers will spend their off-duty time perched atop a 15-foot scaffolding, eating, sleeping and raising awareness for Special Olympics Hawai‘i within the community.
Donations collected from Cop on Top directly benefit Special Olympics Hawai‘i and its efforts to provide year-round sports programs for athletes, including opportunities to participate in regional and national competitions. Since 2001, Cop on Top has raised more than $3.4 million for Special Olympics Hawai‘i athletes statewide.
During this year’s event there will be giveaways, prizes and much more. Special Olympics Hawai‘i will also be giving away visors, caps and T-shirts to those who donate.
