Volunteer and off-duty law enforcement officers from across the state will once again take the opportunity to raise funds and awareness of Special Olympics Hawai’i. From August 25-27 in Kaua’i, volunteer officers will take community service to a new level while perched on scaffolding and 10-foot rooftops. On the ground, volunteers will collect donations and keep buyers and supporters excited.
“This year, Cop on Top celebrates a milestone of two decades of supporting our Special Olympics Hawaii athletes,” said Special Olympics Hawaii President and CEO Dan Epstein. “We invite the public to come out and show their support for these dedicated officers who generously give of their time off to raise funds and awareness of our programs.
On Kaua’i, agents will be above Walmart in Līhu’e.
“Special Olympics Hawaii holds a special place in the hearts of our volunteer officers,” Honolulu Police Department Deputy Chief Ryan Nishibun said. “Donating our time to Cop on Top is a small way to show our support and solidarity with these amazing and inspiring people.”
Donations raised through Cop on Top directly benefit Special Olympics Hawaii and its work to provide year-round athletic, health and wellness programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities. Since 2001, Cop on Top has raised over $3,827,793 for Special Olympics Hawaii athletes statewide.
