#BPCopsPopsandPizza event on June 27

BC RCMP is inviting members of the public to enjoy a slice and support Special Olympics BC during the Cops, Pops, and Pizza campaign. On June 27 from 5 to 9 p.m., BC RCMP members will team up with SOBC athletes to serve customers, collect donations, and raise awareness at Boston Pizza’s Newton and Cloverdale restaurants.

We are excited to help raise awareness and funds for such an important organization as Special Olympics BC. I have seen first hand the impact being part of Special Olympics has on athletes and their families, it is a great pleasure for us to be involved, states Sgt. Janelle Shoihet Media Relations Officer for the BC RCMP.

More than 20 Boston Pizza restaurants across the province are set to take part in this Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics BC event. Participating law enforcement agencies include the Abbotsford, Delta, New Westminster, Port Moody, Vancouver, and West Vancouver police departments, RCMP detachments throughout British Columbia, BC Corrections, B.C. Sheriff Services, and the Metro Vancouver Transit Police.

We are very grateful to all the law enforcement agencies and Boston Pizza restaurants that support Cops, Pops, and Pizza, SOBC President & CEO Dan Howe says. Along with raising vital funds for Special Olympics BC, the campaign is a fun way for athletes and law enforcement members to connect with people in their communities and spread awareness of SOBC’s life-changing programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities.

Cops, Pops, and Pizza is presented in partnership with Boston Pizza. Last year’s inaugural campaign raised more than $12,000 for Special Olympics BC.

We are proud to help these athletes pursue their dreams, gain self-confidence, and lead healthy lives, says James Kawalecki, Boston Pizza Senior Director of Regional Marketing. Boston Pizza would like to thank Special Olympics BC and the Law Enforcement Torch Run for allowing us to participate in what is always a fun, uplifting community event.
