OAKVILLE, Ont. — In celebration of Special Olympics’ 50th anniversary, Tim Hortons will mark the milestone with a limited edition Special Olympics Donut.
The doughnut, designed by Special Olympics athlete Savannah Lussier, will be available only on Global Day of Inclusion on July 21. All proceeds will go to Special Olympics community-based programs across Canada.
Lussier, a 14 year-old from Grand Prairie, Alta., designed the doughnut using her favourite Tim Hortons flavours to create a Honey Cruller dipped in chocolate fondant and topped with red and white sprinkles — the colours of Special Olympics.
Tim Hortons has been a partner of Special Olympics Canada since 2016 and hopes to share a unified message of #ChooseToInclude with more than 45,000 currently participating in Special Olympics in Canada.
“Tim Hortons is proud of the role we’ve played in Canadian communities for over 50 years and is thrilled to work with Special Olympics Canada,” says Sami Siddiqui, president, Tim Hortons Canada. “Together we hope to inspire our guests to see the power of inclusion through sport, and create communities where every person is accepted and welcomed, regardless of ability.”
