to Support Special Olympics Texas Athletes

untitled1

A few of the Wichita Falls area’s finest will exchange their handcuffs for aprons on Thursday,July 24. They’ll spend the evening serving up support at the local Texas Roadhouse at the Tip A Cop event. During the tasty fundraiser, Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) members and Special Olympics Texas athletes will work the dinner shift for tips to later donate to Special Olympics Texas.

Make plans to join the Law Enforcement Torch Run at the Texas Roadhouse located at 3111 Lawrence Road in Wichita Falls.

Torch runners will greet and serve patrons and assist wait staff from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., collecting donations to support Special Olympics Texas athletes in the Wichita Falls area. Patrons can also purchase a Law Enforcement Torch Run t-shirt after they dine and donate; proceeds also benefit SOTX athletes in the Wichita Falls area.

The support provided by this dedicated group has contributed greatly to programs in local communities, which involve more than 51,300 athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state.
