Tim Hortons raised a record-setting $150,000 for Special Olympics athletes on Global Day of Inclusion.
The event focuses on raising funds for Special Olympics Canada which supports Canadians with an intellectual disability to reach their potential through daily sport programs.
During the event, guests could purchase a limited-edition doughnut—a cruller sliced in half—with 100 per cent of proceeds going to Special Olympics countrywide. This year’s doughnut was created by Special Olympics Ontario athlete, Tori Ranson.
“Through Special Olympics, I have made lots of friends in the past 12 years,” said Ranson. “I was excited to see people eating my doughnut.”
