Dunkin’ Cop On a Rooftop 2024

2024 marked the 21st Anniversary of the Dunkinā€™ and Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois partnership.  This partnership has been a huge success over the years; in fact, more than $8.7 million has been raised in Illinois! 

The 2024 Cop on a Rooftop event is scheduled statewide for Friday, MAY 17 from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Law Enforcement officers are needed to staff Dunkinā€™ locations in their local communities to rally support for Special Olympics athletes.  Each guest who makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a coupon for a free donut. Guests who donate $10 or more will receive a LETR/ Dunkin’ branded tumbler (while supplies last) and a coupon for a free medium hot or iced coffee.   

Cop on a Rooftop is a fun, unique and easy way to raise money for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois. 

If have questions on this event, please contact Taylor Wiscons at twiscons@soill.org or 708-860-2332.
