Cop on a Rooftop

July 27, 2016


Guests Receive Free Medium Coffee Coupon Upon Donation

Milwaukee, WI—Law enforcement officers from throughout the state will stake out Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin, on Friday, August 12, beginning at 6 a.m. through 11 a.m.

That morning, for the fifth year in a row, police officers are scheduled to cover 46 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops to heighten awareness and raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) for Special Olympics Wisconsin…rain or shine!

In return for the police officers “doing time” at their restaurants, Dunkin’ Donuts will donate $5,000 to the organization.  In addition, each guest who visits a Cop on a Rooftop location that day and makes a donation will receive a free medium hot or iced coffee coupon.

“Cop on a Rooftop is an event we look forward to every year,” said Jeremy Alsaker, CEO of TMart Operations, whose restaurants are among the 46 that will host the event this year.  “It’s a fun way to support Special Olympics athletes and their families and call attention to the kind of good will police officers bring to our communities every day.”

Last year, Wisconsin police officers raised more than $46,000 from atop 40 Dunkin’ Donuts rooftops for Special Olympics Wisconsin.

The LETR is the largest public awareness vehicle and grass roots fundraiser for Special Olympics.  Known honorably as Guardians of the Flame, law enforcement officers carry the Flame of Hope™ in honor of Special Olympics athletes. In 2016, Wisconsin’s Law Enforcement Torch Run is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. Since the Law Enforcement Torch Run began in 1986, it has raised more than $30 million for Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes. In 2015, the Wisconsin LETR raised over $2.5 million with more than 900 registered participants representing law enforcement agencies across the state.

Special Olympics Wisconsin provides year-round training and competition opportunities through 18 different Olympic-type sports for more than 10,000 individuals with intellectual disabilities. The organization holds over 700 competitions statewide and five state tournaments per year.  For more information, visit or call (800) 552-1324.
