POLICE OFFICERS TO STAKE OUT DUNKIN’ DONUTS ROOFTOPS
TO SUPPORT SPECIAL OLYMPICS WISCONSIN, FRIDAY, JUNE 22
Guests Receive Free Medium Coffee Coupon Upon Donation
Milwaukee, WI—June, 2012—Law enforcement officers throughout the state will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin, on Friday, June 22, beginning at 6 a.m.
That morning, police officers are scheduled to cover 15 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to heighten awareness and raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin….rain or shine!
“The tradition of police officers and donuts goes way back as kind of a joke,” states Wisconsin Torch Run Director and Kenosha County Deputy Sheriff Ray Merlin. “What better way to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Wisconsin! It’s a great opportunity to meet your local officers as they are up on the rooftops of your local Dunkin’ Donuts collecting donations as part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Wisconsin as they celebrate 40 years of serving athletes in our communities.”
In return for the police officers “doing time” at their restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $5,000 to the Torch Run fund. In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation to the Torch Run will receive a Free Medium Hot or Iced Coffee coupon.* Guests donating at least $15 will receive a Law Enforcement Torch Run shirt (while supplies last) and a coupon for a Free Medium Coffee.
Earlier this month, police officers in Illinois held a Cop on a Rooftop event at 130 Dunkin’ Donuts and raised more than $225,000 for Special Olympics Illinois.
The Torch Run is the largest grass-roots fundraising program and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics. Law enforcement officers from the 50 United States, 12 Canadian provinces and territories and 40 nations carry the Flame of Hope in honor of Special Olympics athletes. Wisconsin’s Law Enforcement Torch Run is the sixth highest grossing program in the world, raising nearly $2.4 million in 2011 with more than 1,000 registered participants representing 150 law enforcement agencies.
Special Olympics Wisconsin provides year-round training and competition opportunities through 18 different Olympic-type sports for nearly 10,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities. The organization holds 137 statewide competitions and five state tournaments per year. For more information, visit Special OlympicsWisconsin.org or call(800) 552-1324.
