Boston Pizza teams up for Cops, Pops and Pizza Nov. 14

The BC Law Enforcement Torch Run and Boston Pizza are teaming up to support Special Olympics BC through the Cops, Pops, and Pizza campaign.

Held on Nov. 14 from 5 to 9 p.m., the event will see law enforcement members and SOBC athletes serve customers, collect donations, and raise awareness for Special Olympics at participating Boston Pizza restaurants across the province, which includes the Duncan location.

“The Law Enforcement Torch Run is a global movement dedicated to helping Special Olympics athletes experience acceptance, achievement, and admiration through sport,” says Rick Lucy, BC LETR provincial director and retired Abbotsford Police Department deputy chief constable. “Partnering with Boston Pizza to host Cops, Pops, and Pizza is a fun way for law enforcement members across the province to engage with their communities in order to support Special Olympics BC’s empowering programs for individuals with intellectual disabilities.”

This is the first year for Cops, Pops, and Pizza in British Columbia and Duncan, and more than 25 Boston Pizza locations across the province are set to take part in the event.

“We are proud to help these athletes pursue their dreams, gain self-confidence, and lead healthy lives,” says Scott Jarvis, Boston Pizza marketing manager, Regional and LSM, Western Canada. “Boston Pizza would like to thank Special Olympics BC and the Law Enforcement Torch Run for allowing us to participate in what is always a fun, uplifting community event.”
