Tim Hortons Special Olympics Donut: Choose to Include Donut

Tim Hortons is proud to be partnering with Special Olympics Canada in launching the Choose To Include fundraising donut, starting Friday January 28. The Tim Hortons Special Olympics Donut has a goal of raising funds to help expand the quality, opportunity and accessibility of Special Olympics’ daily community sport programs to Canadians with an intellectual disability.

The limited-edition fundraising donut will be sold at participating Tim Hortons restaurants across Canada for $1.69 (plus applicable taxes. Prices may vary by region) starting this Friday and through Sunday, with 100 per cent of proceeds supporting Special Olympics Canada.

The Choose To Include donut is a chocolate cake ring donut with white fondant, coloured sprinkles and whipped topping.

The multi-coloured design was inspired by the themes of diversity and inclusion that are central to the Special Olympics mission.

Special Olympics Canada is part of an international movement dedicated to enriching the lives of Canadians with an intellectual disability through sport.

Their vision is that sport can open hearts and minds towards people with intellectual disabilities to create inclusive communities all across Canada. There are more than 41,000 Special Olympics athletes across the country.

To support the launch of this fundraising donut, local Champions of Inclusion have been nominated by Special Olympics Canada.

These athletes have experienced the power of inclusion and are sharing their stories to help create more inclusive communities across Canada.

One of those Champions of Inclusion, Monique Shah of Bradford, Ont., will appear in the national campaign to promote the Choose To Include Donut.

Shah was Special Olympics Canada’s athlete of the year for 2020, where she was recognized for her athletic achievements and championing inclusion in sport amongst her teammates.

She believes we can all play our part when it comes to creating a more inclusive society.

Tim Hortons has been a proud sponsor of Special Olympics Canada since 2016.

In addition to creating the Choose To Include fundraising donut, they are also the lead corporate sponsor of Special Olympics Canada’s youth programs: Active Start, for two- to six-year-olds, and FUNdamentals, for seven- to 12-year-olds.
