(BLOOMINGTON) - The Indiana State Police and the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant in Bloomington will be hosting a "Tip-a-Cop" fundraising event on Friday, from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. at the restaurant located at 110 South Franklin Road in Bloomington.

Troopers from the Indiana State Police Bloomington District will be accepting donations on behalf of Special Olympics of Indiana.

All donations will go directly to Special Olympics of Indiana.

Special Olympics Indiana is a not-for-profit organization that provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in more than 20 Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, reaching more than 11,000 athletes across Indiana. Special Olympics Indiana is part of the international network of accredited Special Olympics Programs that reaches nearly 4 million athletes with intellectual disabilities worldwide.

Tip-A-Cop® is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) campaign. LETR, which includes an international series of relay runs and special events like Tip-A-Cop®, is presented by more than 144,000 law enforcement officers worldwide to help raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics. LETR is the largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics through which funds raised go directly to local programs in states or countries where the funds are generated.

The Indiana State Police was recognized in April 2013 as a Bronze Medal Law Enforcement Torch Run Agency. State Police Superintendent Douglas Carter has participated in Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) events during his law enforcement career and extends his unwavering support for this program through the ranks of the Indiana State Police.
