The Special Olympics Donut in partnership with Tim Horton's was back for another year February 3rd-5th. The donut was available at all participating locations across the Northwest Territories (Fort Smith, Yellowknife downtown & uptown locations). Local Special Olympics athletes Chelsey Makaro, Sydney Peer and Kelton Broome were on hand in store Friday February 3rd to help launch the campaign at the uptown Yellowknife store and assist behind the counter selling donuts! Over $625,000.00 was raised across Canada with approximately $1500.00 in donuts purchased within the NWT, those funds will stay in the NWT and go directly to Special Olympics programs and initiatives!
Special Olympics NWT thanks all community members and local businesses who purchased their donuts and were "choosing to include"!
