COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The 5th annual Cops on Top event is raising money for the Special Olympics, so more than 400 athletes in Lee County can continue fulfilling their hopes and dreams!
With smiles on their faces and a goal of raising more than $15,000, Lee County Law Enforcement Officers banded together for Cops on Top, to raise money for the Special Olympics.
"It feels good to be out here raising money for Special Olympics, we look forward to it every year and just happy to be able to give back," said Kenny Frazier.
"It's important for the athletes to have those sports programs that are theirs and they take ownership of and their families can come out and be proud to see them compete and they enjoy the activities and being with their social peers and making friendships," said Special Olympics Director for Lee County, Dana Stewart.
What's so awesome about Lee County Special Olympics and your support is that it helps this local group be inclusive. They welcome athletes from other counties who do not have Special Olympic programs to join them, so everyone can participate!
Opelika police and Lee County deputies will be at the Tiger Town Kroger location until 8 p.m. CT on Friday. You can also donate at the Auburn Kroger on Glenn Dean Road. Auburn police officers are at that location and are more than happy to help you give to this great cause.
The goal is to raise more than $15,000! Please, help them out!
