Police and TX Roadhouse to Benefit Special Olympics


Officers from the San Marcos Police Department will be serving tables and collecting donations at Texas Roadhouse, 1502 N Interstate 35 Frontage Rd, on Thursday, July 25 from 5 to 9 p.m. for the annual “Tip-a-Cop” event in support of Special Olympics Texas.

Donations, or “tips,” from the event will be added to the Law Enforcement Torch Run Campaign, the largest grass-roots fundraising campaign benefiting the Special Olympics and will help support athletes in our community. The Special Olympics is a year-round movement that provides sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

“The power and spirit of the Special Olympics athletes inspires our officers both in the field and in our personal lives,” said SMPD Chief Chase Stapp. “We are honored to offer our support to this cause each year.” 

Texas Roadhouse restaurants across Texas are participating in the fundraising event, including the Austin, Pflugerville, and San Antonio locations. For more information, visit
