TORONTO — Tim Hortons is partnering with Special Olympics Canada to launch the Choose To Include fundraising doughnut, starting this Friday through Sunday. The goal of the fundraiser is to help expand the quality, opportunity and accessibility of Special Olympics’ daily community-sport programs for Canadians with an intellectual disability.
“At Tim Hortons, we believe in the power of sport. We know that through sport, we can discover new strengths and abilities, develop new skills and find joy, confidence and fulfillment. We’re so proud to be a long-standing partner of Special Olympics Canada and to play a role in helping support this important organization’s incredible work,” says Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer of Tim Hortons.
“The need for funding to help our community prepare for the safe return to sport for Special Olympics athletes and volunteers is urgent,” says Sharon Bollenbach, CEO, Special Olympics Canada. “People with intellectual disabilities have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and limited access to social and physical activities have played a major role in the challenges our community is facing. Every Choose To Include doughnut purchased for our cause makes a difference and we look forward to seeing Canadians take part in our movement.”
