Cop on Top


Cop on Top: Thursday - Saturday, August 17-19, 2017

The sky is the limit for local law enforcement preparing to raise the volume on acceptance and inclusion for individuals with intellectual disabilities. This year’s 16th Annual Cop on Top fundraiser will have officials getting comfortable atop 14-foot scaffolds, where they will stay for three consecutive days to raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics Hawai’i athletes. Cop on Top will take place from Thursday, August 17 through Saturday, August 19 at Walmart stores statewide, as well as locations around O’ahu including all Sam’s Club stores, Salt Lake Shopping Center, Kāne‘ohe Bay Shopping Center, Enchanted Lake Shopping Center, Hawai’i Kai Shopping Center, and Manoa Marketplace.

“Walmart is proud to support the communities we serve in the islands,” said Steven Reed, Walmart Hawai’i Market Manager. “As we observe a five-year partnership with Special Olympics’ Cop on Top, we are humbled to see firsthand the positive impact funds raised at our stores have had on our local athletes with intellectual disabilities.”

Since 2001 Cop on Top has raised more than $2,462,430 to benefit Special Olympics Hawai’i.

“I have been part of Cop on Top for the last nine years and it brings me joy to help those individuals with special needs,” said Tracy JK Fermin-Bras, U.S. Customs and Border Protection. “This event is very near and dear to my heart and very personal for me. I believe in their mission, and I understand first hand what Cop on Top and other Special Olympic Hawai’i events can do for families like mine.”

Special Olympics Hawai’i provides year-round sports training and competition opportunities to more than 3,900 athletes across the state each year. The average cost to serve one athlete is approximately $756 a year.

“Cop on Top celebrates our partnership with local law enforcement and is one of the Law Enforcement Torch Run’s biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Nancy Bottelo, Special Olympics Hawai’i president and CEO. “It is thanks to the support of these wonderful officers who give so selflessly of their off duty time that we are able to support our athletes year-round, free of charge.”

 

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, Kāne‘ohe Bay Shopping Center and Hawai‘i Kai Shopping Center.

“This is the fourth year we have hosted Cop on Top at our Hawai’i stores and we are thrilled to welcome everyone back for another great year,” said Rey Armijo, Walmart Hawai’i Market Manager. “Cop on Top is an event we are incredibly honored to be a part of and support, providing a venue for these selfless law enforcement officers and helping to raise funds for theseinspiring athletes.”

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.

“All monies raised stay in the islands and help to fund the programs that allow our athletes to compete year round, free of charge,” said Nancy Bottelo, Special Olympics Hawai’i president and CEO. The generosity and support the community has shown towards Cop on Top is inspiring and I would encourage everyone to come down again this year and show your support for our officers and athletes.
