2021 Dunkin’ Partnership

2021 marks the 18th Anniversary of the Dunkin’ partnership with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois!  This event has been a huge success over the years; in fact, more than $5.75 million has been raised in Illinois during this great partnership!

This year’s Cop on Rooftop event is tentatively scheduled statewide for Friday, August 20, 2021, from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m.  In 2019, 315 locations participated and raised more than $957,000. Due to the pandemic we were unable to host this event in 2020.  Save the date to join Illinois LETR as we return to Dunkin’ and make 2021 a record year for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois!!

Our annual LETR Dunkin’ event is a fun, unique and easy way to raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.  If your department is interested in participating in this year’s event please follow the information below.
