Pittsburgh Police, Athletes Raise Funds at Red Robin for Special Olympics

Officers and Special Olympics athletes from Western PA will meet customers and seek donations during the dinner hour Saturday at Red Robin restaurants in Cranberry, Robinson and elsewhere.

Members of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and Special Olympics athletes from Western Pennsylvania will meet customers and raise funds Saturday at Red Robin restaurants in Cranberry, Robinson and elsewhere around the region.

Officers in uniform and athletes are volunteering their time to help raise awareness and funds for Special Olympics, according to Pittsburgh Police Cmdr. Scott Schubert.

Officers and athletes, along with marked police vehicles, will visit the restaurants to meet dinner customers between 4:30 and 8:30 p.m., Cmdr. Schubert said.

The event benefits Western Pennsylvania and Pennsylvania Special Olympics programs, as well as those in Allegheny and Butler counties.

Officer/athlete teams will be at Red Robin restaurants in Robinson Township, South Hills Village in Upper St. Clair, the Waterfront in Homestead and Pittsburgh Mills in Frazer Township. 

All donations received during the officer/athlete visits go directly to local Special Olympics programs, Cmdr. Schubert said. 

The event is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign, which includes an international series of relay runs and special events presented by more than 85,000 law enforcement officers worldwide to raise money and public awareness for Special Olympics.
