A few of Lubbock’s finest will exchange their handcuffs for aprons on July 25. They'll spend the evening serving up support at the local Texas Roadhouse at the Tip A Cop event. During the fundraiser, Law Enforcement Torch Run members will work the dinner shift for tips to later donate to Special Olympics Texas athletes.


Torch runners will greet and serve patrons and assist wait staff from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., collecting donations to support the movement. Patrons are encouraged to purchase a Torch Run t-shirt after they dine and donate; proceeds will benefit SOTX athletes in Lubbock.

About the Law Enforcement Torch Run
The Law Enforcement Torch Run is Special Olympics' largest grass-roots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle. In Texas, the Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1985 and had grown to become one of the largest in the nation. In the last decade, Torch Run has contributed over $11 million through the dedication of thousands of law enforcement personnel fundraising on behalf of SOTX. The support provided by this dedicated group has contributed greatly to programs in local communities, which involve more than 44,000 athletes with intellectual disabilities throughout the state.
