Law Enforcement Rise to the Challenge for Special Olympics Hawai‘i’s Cop on Top Event

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Dozens of local law enforcement are busy getting themselves into tip top shape as they prepare to rise to the challenge for this year's 13th Annual Special Olympics Hawai'i Cop on Top fundraiser. Law enforcement officials across O'ahu, Maui, Kaua'i, and Hawai'i Island will climb atop 14-foot scaffolds for three successive days, from August 28-30, 2014, to raise awareness for the local nonprofit organization and funds for Special Olympics athletes. 

This year, Cop on Top will be held at Walmart stores statewide as well as locations around O'ahu including all Sam's Club stores, Aikahi Shopping Center, Kane‘ohe Bay Shopping Center and Hawai‘i Kai Shopping Center.

Since 2001 Cop on Top has raised more than $2,253,000 to benefit Special Olympics Hawai'i.

Special Olympics Hawai'i provides year-round sports training and competition opportunities to more than 3,500 athletes across the state each year. The average cost to serve one athlete is approximately $865 a year.
