POLICE OFFICERS RAISED MONEY FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS by eating, sleeping, and raising awareness for the organization as they stayed on top of a 10-foot scaffolding at Hilo Wal-Mart over the last three days. It happens again in November in Kona. The event, formerly Cops on Top and now called Badges and Buckets, is the largest annual grassroots fundraiser for Special Olympics Hawai‘i. Now in its 20th year, this three-day event will move to Kona Wal-Mart on Nov. 10 and 11 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Nov. 12 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations collected from Badges and Buckets directly benefit Special Olympics Hawai‘i
Over the years, the efforts of Hawai‘i Police Department’s officers have raised $250,000 to help provide year-round sports training and competitions to children and adults with intellectual disabilities. This event is the largest Special Olympics fundraiser of the year and a large part of the annual budget is raised through this one event alone.
During this year’s events, there are numerous, great incentives through donations made by many local sponsors. Special Olympics Hawai‘i will also be giving away visors, caps and t-shirts to those who donate.
