The Bethel Police Department was able to raise nearly $3,000 for Special Olympics Connecticut during a recent event. A Tip-A-Cop fundraiser was held Monday and through the generosity of the community, and Edison Kitchen matching all tips collected, Special Olympus CT was presented with a donation of $2,893. Bethel Police say it's events like these that have allowed athletes just like Bethel resident Danielle Mola to continue in opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in sharing of gifts, skills, and, friendship with the world. Danielle recently competed in the World Games in Orlando over the summer where she won gold in the 100 meter dash, and 4 x 400 meter relay. She also placed 4th in the individual 400 meter race.
