Mounted Patrol Horse Goes Through Krispy Kreme Drive-Through to Publicize Their Special Olympics Fundraiser


Last week, a police mounted horse named Red enjoyed a couple of doughnuts from the Krispy Kreme drive-through in Tampa, Florida to bring attention to the 10th Annual Cops on Doughnut Shops, a fundraising campaign for Special Olympics Florida during which members of the Tampa Police Department took to the roof of the Krispy Kreme on West Kennedy Boulevard and lowered buckets for donations. In exchange, donors received a free glazed doughnut—not a bad way to help athletes get to Orlando.

The money that is raised during the two-day event is used to help athletes with intellectual disabilities participate in Olympic style sporting events during the summer. The games will be played at Disney’s Wide World of Sports this May.
