For the 12th year in a row, hundreds of law enforcement officers from throughout Illinois will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to benefit Special Olympics Illinois on Friday, including shops in DeKalb and Sycamore.

In honor of the Special Olympics athletes and police officers supporting the roof top event, Dunkin’ Donuts created a special glazed red and white donut ring depicting Special Olympics Illinois colors. The donut, called “The Champion,” will be available Monday through Friday.

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 hats, will be sold for various donation amounts. Additional activities will vary by store location.
