Tip-A-Cop events are fundraisers organized in collaboration with The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics Oregon, Local Programs and participating restaurants.


In this event, Law Enforcement Officers volunteer their time as “Celebrity Waiters” in restaurants and receive tips to raise funds for Special Olympics Oregon. Special Olympics Oregon athletes and teams are encouraged to also volunteer as door greeters, to meet and greet with the customers and explain this fundraising opportunity.

Tip-A-Cop events generate tremendous community goodwill and public awareness for Law Enforcement and Special Olympics Oregon. It allows LETR volunteers to involve their families and colleagues in a fundraiser for Special Olympics Oregon as well as Special Olympics Oregon athletes and volunteers.
