Athletes Support Tip-A-Cop Campaign

Several athletes joined many Howard County Law Enforcement officers in their annual Tip-A-Cop campaign at Red Robin restaurant in Columbia on Saturday, October 24th. Callie Seidl, Nick Stewart, Owen Reynolds, Andrew Roberts, Mia Luoma, Chris Pinos and Justin Richter, wearing some of their medals,  greeted Red Robin patrons. Proceeds from this Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraiser will benefit Special Olympics Maryland. We are very grateful for our local Law Enforcement partners who are very supportive of our athletes.  According to Pfc Bonita Linkins, Community Outreach Department of the Howard County Police Department,  the officers love to be involved with our athletes as “they  are more than amazing!” We feel the same way about the Howard County Law Enforcement community! The event was very successful, raising $3,617!
