For the last 10 years, Yakima police lieutenant Mike Merryman has participated in a very special fundraiser to benefit Special Olympics. Lt. Merryman spends the night and most of one day camped out in a tent on the roof of Yakima's TOP Food and Drug store, taking donations to raise cash.

Lt. Merryman was a guest on Thursday's Mike Bastinelli show. He talked about why law enforcement agencies support Special Olympics, and what it's like to camp out on the roof of a large supermarket.
