KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - A community service officer with the Kearney Police Department is planning to sit on Walmart rooftop this weekend until he raises at least $6,000 for the Nebraska Special Olympics.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/2hOkxJn ) that 35-year-old Seth VanHorn will live on the store’s roof starting at 3 p.m. Friday. VanHorn is raising money through the Cop on Top program. He has already raised $2,250 toward his goal.

Forecasters say there’s a 40 percent chance of snow before 1 p.m. on Saturday, with a north win of 20-25 mph and gusts as high as 35 mph.

Last year, VanHorn raised $7,821 in 26 hours. In the last seven years, he has raised more than $47,000 for the Nebraska Special Olympics.
