Tim Hortons Offers Annual Special Olympics Donut From Feb 2-4

ONTARIO-Tim Hortons is partnering with Special Olympics Canada for a fifth year to raise funds for athletes through the sale of Special Olympics Donuts, available at Tims restaurants across Canada from Feb. 2-4.

Each year, 100 per cent of the proceeds from each Special Olympics Donut sold are donated to Special Olympics Canada to help athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities access more opportunities to reach their full potential in sport and in life.

“We’re proud to continue our long-standing support of Special Olympics Canada and will be cheering on all the athletes who will be competing at the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Calgary in a few weeks,” says Axel Schwan, President of Tim Hortons

“Together, through the sale of each Special Olympics Donut, we can help make a difference in the lives of athletes who deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential.”

The Special Olympics Donut can be purchased at participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada Feb. 2 through Feb. 4. The Special Olympics Donut is a delicious chocolate cake ring donut with white fondant, coloured sprinkles and whipped topping. The multi-coloured design was inspired by the themes of diversity and inclusion that are central to the Special Olympics mission.

“We are grateful to have Tim Hortons support of our community sport programming and competition opportunities that enrich the lives of more than 42,000 athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities nationwide,” says Gail Hamamoto, Chief Executive Officer of Special Olympics Canada. “We look forward to seeing Canadians showcase their belief in inclusion by visiting their local Tim Hortons to purchase a Special Olympics Donut from February 2-4. Together we are creating more inclusive communities across Canada.”

“I may be different, but I am a champion. When people buy the Special Olympics Donut at Tim Hortons, they are supporting and including athletes like me,” shares Special Olympics figure skater, Emanuel Bou Lutfallah.

This year’s Special Olympics Canada Winter Games are taking place in Calgary from Feb. 27 through March 2. The five-day competition will host more than 810 athletes with intellectual and developmental disabilities, over 410 Special Olympics coaches and support staff, more than 1,200 volunteers, and over 1,000 family members. The Games will include competitions in eight sports: floor hockey, five-pin bowling, alpine skiing, curling, cross-country skiing, figure skating, speed skating and snowshoeing.
