NORWICH – The Norwich Cops on Top event held in August led in funds raised for the Special Olympics.
Dunkin’ Donuts and the Law Enforcement Torch Run for the Special Olympics have joined forces to raise both awareness and funds to New York’s Special Olympics athletes for the past five years.
New York State Trooper Jeremy Hicks said he was asked to help out with the event, and retired CCSO employee Sheri Howe played an integral role.
“In this day and age with law enforcement, it is important to get out there in the community so the residents see that we care,” said Hicks. “We care about them, their children, and these athletes.”
Hicks said a donation of any dollar amount granted the visitor a coupon for a free cup of coffee or a donut. A $20 donation allowed the donor to receive a t-shirt.
