The Hawaii Police Department will sponsor the 18th Annual “Cop on Top” fundraiser for Special Olympics Hawaii from 7 a.m. Aug. 22 to 3 p.m. Aug. 24 at the Hilo and Kona Walmart stores.
For three straight days, officers will spend their off-duty time perched atop 14-foot scaffolding at both stores, eating, sleeping and raising awareness for Special Olympics Hawaii within the community. Donations directly benefit Special Olympics Hawaii and their efforts to provide sports programs for athletes year-round, including opportunities to participate in regional and national competitions.
Since 2001, “Cop on Top” has raised more than $3,437,236 for Special Olympics Hawaii athletes statewide.
During this year’s event, there will be numerous incentives through donations from many local sponsors. Special Olympics Hawaii will also be giving away visors, caps, and T-shirts to donors.
