Law Enforcement Officers Serve It Up to Raise Money for Special Olympics Texas

Officers take over Texas Roadhouse restaurants in College Station

COLLEGE STATION – Law enforcement officers want to serve you and help raise money for Special Olympics Texas athletes. On Thursday, June 12, Law Enforcement Torch Run Officers will take over more than 35 Texas Roadhouse restaurants across the state, including in College Station, to collect tips for Special Olympics Texas athletes.

Law enforcement officers will be at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant at 1601 University Drive East serving patrons dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Officers will act as “celebrity waiters”, serving customers and collecting tips. Tip A Cop is one way in which law enforcement has been able to successfully raise funds for the 27,610 children and adults with intellectual disabilities who participate in Special Olympics Texas.

In Texas, the Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1985 and had grown to become one of the largest in the nation. In the last decade, Torch Run has contributed over $11 million through the dedication of thousands of law enforcement personnel fundraising on behalf of SOTX. The support provided by this dedicated group has contributed greatly to programs in local communities, which involve more than 27,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities.
