On Saturday, July 20, Tim Hortons and Special Olympics Canada are teaming up to release a limited edition donut to support and celebrate Global Day of Inclusion. Global Day of Inclusion began in 2018 and together Tim Hortons and Special Olympics Canada are raising awareness and funds to empower 47,500 Canadians with intellectual disabilities to reach their full potential through Special Olympics programs. 




This year’s donut was created by 26-year-old Special Olympics athlete Tori Ranson, whose creation was chosen from more than 400 submissions. Tori’s donut features a cruller sliced in half and filled with whipped topping and is decorated with vanilla fondant and red sprinkles. Tori is an active member of the Georgetown and Milton Special Olympics clubs.
