For three days, off-duty police officers from Hawaii will participate in an event aimed at raising awareness β€” and money β€” for that state's Special Olympics athletes, according to BigIslandNow.com.

In the 17th Annual "Cop on Top" event, police will perch atop 10-foot scaffolds, in front of various retail stores β€” including Walmart, Safeway, and Sam's Club β€” as well as shopping centers and other locations.

They will eat, sleep, and find ways to keep busy during waking hours in a show of support for athletes with disabilities.

According to WestHawaiiToday.com, the "Cop on Top" program has raised more than $3,102,119 for Special Olympics athletes since 2001.
