Tim Horton's Launching Limited-Time Doughnut For a Good Cause in Mississauga
This week marks the first anniversary of Global Day of Inclusion, and to celebrate Tim Horton’s and Special Olympics Canada are teaming up to bring a limited-time doughnut to Mississauga.
The Special Olympics Donut was created by 26-year-old Special Olympics athlete Tori Ranson, whose creation was chosen from more than 400 submissions. Tori is a member of the Georgetown and Milton Special Olympics clubs.
“Special Olympics has been a huge part of my life for over 12 years,” said Ranson. “I love the friendships I have found over the years through Special Olympics. I have a lot of great buddies. I can’t wait to see people enjoying my doughnut - I used red sprinkles for Canada.”
The doughnut features a cruller sliced in half and filled with whipped topping and is decorated with vanilla fondant and red sprinkles.
On Saturday (July 20) guests can purchase the doughnut at a participating restaurant with all proceeds going towards Special Olympics in Canada programs. These programs will help 47,500 Canadians with intellectual disabilities to reach their full potential.
“Community is at the heart of who we are as a brand at Tim Hortons,” said Alex Macedo, the President of Tim Hortons. “We’re proud of the role our restaurant owners play in communities and are thrilled to be working with an organization that shares our core value of inclusion. This year is our second year working with Special Olympics Canada to support Global Day of Inclusion and we hope that together we can inspire our guests to recognize the power of inclusion through sport and continue to foster communities where everyone is welcome.”
Global Day of Inclusion raises awareness for people to be recognized for what they CAN do, instead of what they can’t.
