Dunkin Donuts Chicago's Cop On A Rooftop for the Special Olympics Illinois


POLICE OFFICERS TO HIT 237 DUNKIN’ DONUTS ROOFTOPS FOR SPECIAL OLYMPICS ILLINOIS, FRIDAY, MAY 20

For the 14th year in a row, hundreds of law enforcement officers from throughout the state will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to benefit Special Olympics Illinois on Friday, May 20, beginning at 5 a.m. 
Police officers are scheduled to cover 237 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois.  With approximately 25 more Dunkin’ Donuts locations participating this year, officers hope to top last year’s donation total of $540,000.

Attorney General Lisa Madigan, Special Olympics athletes and their families and representatives from Chicago’s major sports teams are among the special guests who will join police officers and rise  to the occasion to show their support.



In honor of the Special Olympics athletes and police officers supporting the rooftop event, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $15,000 to the Torch Run fund. 

In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a free donut coupon.  Guests donating at least $10 will receive a Law Enforcement Torch Run travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for free medium coffee.  Other items, such as Torch Run T-shirts and raffle tickets, will be sold for various donation amounts. Additional activities will vary by Dunkin’ Donuts location. 

Dunkin’ Donuts also has created a special glazed red and white donut ring depicting Special Olympics Illinois colors. The donut, called “The Champion,” will be available at Dunkin’ Donuts locations in Chicago and suburbs May 20. 

“I think Cop on a Rooftop is a neat fundraiser to show support for Special Olympics and gain attention for cops being on the roof,” said Special Olympics athlete Bree Bogucki, who will join police officers at the Dunkin’ Donuts in Cary that day. “Also, it means that I get donuts.”

"Cop on a Rooftop is an event we look forward to every year," said Aziz Nathani, a multi-unit franchisee whose restaurants are among the hundreds of Dunkin' Donuts that have hosted the event over the years. “It’s a fun and unique way to support Special Olympics athletes and their families and call attention to the kind of good will police officers bring to our communities every day. We are truly honored to participate."

About Law Enforcement Torch Run

The Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest fund-raising vehicle benefiting Special Olympics Illinois. This intrastate relay and its various fundraising projects have two goals:  to raise money and increase public awareness for the athletes of Special Olympics. Each year, more than 3,000 officers in Illinois run more than 1,500 miles carrying the Flame of Hope through the streets of their hometowns and to the State Summer Games in Normal in June. The Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016. What began by raising just $14,000 in 1986 has grown to raising more than $14.1 million in 2015, making it the second largest Torch Run in the world!
