Yakima Police Raise Money For Disabled Athletes

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- Yakima police are raising money for disabled athletes

The annual Tip-A-Cop event is happening at the Red Robin on Nob Hill Boulevard in Yakima.

The event is a fundraiser for Yakima Special Olympics athletes so they can participate in athletic events in the region throughout the year.

Police said they are happy no matter how much money they raise for disabled athletes.

"We don't really put a goal on it, we're just happy with what the folks bring us because it all goes to a great cause, but we'll find ourselves generally in the three to $4,500 mark," said Lieutenant Mike Merryman.

Last year cops raised more than $3,000 at the event.

This is one of the biggest fundraisers that bring awareness to disabled athletes and the Yakima Special Olympics.
