GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Today was Tip A Cop at Chili's and more than 30 restaurants across Colorado got involved.

Many local cops traded in their badges for aprons and helped servers at Chili's all afternoon to help raise money for Special Olympics Colorado.

Chili's says they were also glad to be a part of it all.

"That's kind of our restaurants way of giving back to them," Chili's Employee Antonio Klopfenstein. "They help us out, we help them out. It's a give and take and it's kind of awesome."

Tip A Cop is part of the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run, which includes a number of relays all over the world to kick off the Special Olympics.

Athletes were also at the restaurant today to greet customers, showcase their medals and accept donations.

Money raised will be used to help provide year-round training for nearly 15,000 athletes in Colorado.
