We can not thank you enough for your support
of the Law Enforcement Torch Run program by
participating in the first Red Robin
Tip-a-Cop program to benefit Special
Olympics Indiana. Your commitment helping
to organize and conduct a professional,
successful event is recognized and so
This year's Red Robin Tip-a-Cop helped
raise more that $4,100 for Special Olympics
Indiana. This year's bragging rights for
top revenue goes to the Valparaiso Red Robin
store which raised $1,625 in donations.
This store had officer participation by the
Porter County Sheriff's Department and
Valparaiso Police Department agencies.
As you are aware, an estimated 3% of the
population has an intellectual disability.
More than one million Special Olympics
athletes participate in 26 sports throughout
the world Special Olympics Indiana reaches
almost 10,000 Hoosier athletes each year who
compete in over 20 different sports
throughout the State.
Special Olympics Indiana receives no
federal or state appropriated funds, is not
a United Way agency and relies entirely on
corporate, civic and individual donations.
Ultimately, your support of this event
helps Special Olympics Indiana fulfill its
mission of providing year-round sports
training and athletic competition in a
variety of Olympic-type sports for
individuals with intellectual disabilities
by giving them continuing opportunities to
develop physical fitness, demonstrate
courage, experience joy and participate in a
sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with
their families, other Special Olympics
athletes and their community.
We look forward to partnering again on
future Law Enforcement Torch Run events.
