COLUMBUS Law enforcement officers throughout the state will stake out rooftops at 12 Dunkin’ Donuts locations, including the one at 3305 Manchester Road in Coventry Township, to support Special Olympics Ohio beginning at 5 a.m. on May 19.
Officers will be on the rooftops to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Ohio. In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation will receive a free donut coupon.
Guests donating at least $10 will receive a Dunkin Donut/Law Enforcement Torch Run travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for free medium coffee. Additional activities will vary by Dunkin’ Donuts location.
“The Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run is proud to partner with Dunkin Donuts on the Cop on a Rooftop event,” said Euclid Police Department Captain and Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run Director Jim Savage in a news release. “Through events like this we are able to connect with our communities and share the importance of Special Olympics to individuals with intellectual disabilities while raising much needed funds for the program. It is a win win-win for Dunkin Donuts, Law Enforcement, and Special Olympics.”
The Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run is the single largest year-round fundraising vehicle benefiting Special Olympics Ohio. The annual intrastate relay and its various fundraising projects have two goals: to raise money and gain public awareness for the athletes who participate in Special Olympics Ohio. Last year the Ohio Law Enforcement Torch Run has raised more than $500,000 while increasing awareness of Special Olympics Ohio athletes and their accomplishments.
