Wake Forest Police to Participate in “Tip-A-Cop” for Special Olympics Oct. 24

Several Wake Forest Police officers will participate in Red Robin’s 10th Annual Tip-A-Cop event on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Wake Forest Red Robin, 11420 Capital Blvd.

Throughout the day officers will volunteer their time as servers alongside Red Robin’s wait staff to collect tips and raise funds for Special Olympics of North Carolina.

In addition, 2015 Special Olympics of NC Law Enforcement Torch Run T-Shirts will be available for purchase for $ 13 each.

Tip-A-Cop is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) campaign in support of Special Olympics. LETR is supported by more than 100,000 law enforcement officers worldwide who help raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics.

In less than 10 years, Tip-A-Cop events at Red Robin restaurants have raised more than $ 2.7 million to support both Special Olympics and the mission of inclusion and acceptance for people with intellectual disabilities. In North Carolina, more than $ 112,000 has been raised since 2010. This funding supports year-round sports training and athletic competitions in a variety of Olympic-type sports throughout the United States.
