FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Fort Wayne troopers partnered with Red Robin Saturday to raise money for the special olympics.

The fundraiser was part of the 12th annual nationwide Tip A Cop campaign.

The special olympics is a not-for-profit organization that provides training in more than 20 sports for adults and children with special abilities.

The troopers tried their hand at serving tables while also raising money.

"I've always been behind the scenes as a cook and it's very different out here, so I'm just hoping I don't mess up any orders," said Matt Lazoff, state trooper.
