On July 20, Tim Hortons and Special Olympics Canada are teaming up to release a limited edition doughnut to support and celebrate Global Day of Inclusion.

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

“Special Olympics has been a huge part of my life for over 12 years. I love the friendships I have found over the years through Special Olympics. I have a lot of great buddies. I can’t wait to see people enjoying my doughnut – I used red sprinkles for Canada,” she says.

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. Inclusion will rally the world to #ChooseToInclude, they explain, so all people are included and recognized for what they can do, instead of what they can’t.

All proceeds of limited edition doughnut support Special Olympics programs nationwide.

Located in Georgetown, Ont., Komcan is the exclusive distributor of Komori presses in Canada. To support this cause, Komcan is running a contest – show your support by sharing a photo of you and the doughnut with the hashtag #komcantori, and Komcan will select one winner who shows the “most spirit, creativity and support for this incredible campaign. The winner will receive a Komcan swagbag full of useful items along with the knowledge that they supported this awesome girl and amazing cause.”
