16th Annual Cop on Top Takes the Law to New Heights August 17-19

It’s a race to the top for local law enforcement. This year’s 16th Annual Cop on Top fundraiser brings together volunteer, off-duty law enforcement officers from across the state, Thursday, August 17 to Saturday, August 19. Officers will stay atop 10-foot scaffolds, where they will stay and share the mission of Special Olympics until they reach their fundraising goal.

The annual fundraiser will take place at Walmart stores statewide (with the exception of Downtown Honolulu) and all Sam’s Club stores on Oahu. Additional locations include shopping centers around O’ahu including two new locations – Manoa Marketplace and Laulani Village Shopping Center – as well as Salt Lake Shopping Center, Kāne‘ohe Bay Shopping Center, Hawai’i Kai Shopping Center and Enchanted Lake Shopping Center.

“Walmart and our more than 4,000 associates in Hawaii are proud to be part of the annual Cop on Top fundraiser alongside local law enforcement officers,” said Lance McAlister, Walmart’s Hawai’i Market Manager. “It’s our seventh year supporting this great event that brings together law enforcement and our community to celebrate Hawai’i’s Special Olympics athletes.”

Proceeds raised from Cop on Top go directly to Special Olympics Hawai’i and their work providing more than 45 sporting competitions year-round. The average cost to serve one athlete is approximately $650 a year.

“Every year I look forward to spending time with the athletes and volunteers of Special Olympics at Cop on Top,” said Honolulu Police Department Traffic Division Officer, Ty Ah Nee. “The event is a fun, creative and engaging way to recognize individuals with intellectual disabilities, while raising the funds that are necessary to help support them in their quest for gold.”

Since 2001 Cop on Top has raised more than $2,929,000 for Special Olympics Hawai’i.
