Please join us for the 17th Anniversary of the Cop On A Rooftop event with the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois. This event has been a huge success over the years, with more than $4.8 million raised during this great partnership!

This year’s Cop On A Rooftop event will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019 from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m. with two local Dunkin’ locations participating, 936 N. York Rd. and 195 E. Butterfield. With last year’s generous donations, the Elmhurst Police Department officers and civilian volunteers were able to help raise more than $7,000 for Special Olympics Illinois. Please join us to support this worthy cause!
