EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. -- Law enforcement from around the area are spending twelve hours on the roof of the Walmart in East Greenbush, and it's all for a good cause.
The officers taking part in the Cops on Top event volunteered their time to raise money and awareness for the Special Olympics.
Cops on Top is in its second year and the goal is to raise $15,000 by 8 p.m.
The money raised will benefit the athletes who participate in the games, as well as their families.
"Special Olympics New York has over 61,000 athletes across New York State who train and compete in sports at absolutely no cost to them, their families, or their caregivers. So, it's events like these allow us to provide them with things like uniforms, transportation, equipment, everything that goes into that training and competition," said Michelle Mumma, a Development Specialist for Special Olympics NY.
The Walmart store in Saratoga Springs is also participating in the Cops on Top initiative.
