Vernon Hills “Cops On Rooftop” To Support Special Olympics
On Friday, May 18, 2018, from 5:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., patrons of the Dunkin’ Donuts at the Hawthorn Hills Shopping Center at Routes 60 & 21 will be greeted by Vernon Hills Police officers waving from the roof in order to raise money and awareness for a great cause. It’s all part of the 16th annual Cops on Rooftop event to raise money for the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.
Those donating money for the cause will receive a coupon for a free doughnut.
This is the 11th year for the “Cops on Rooftop” event in Vernon Hills which has raised almost $15,600.00 in the last ten years. In 2017, 274 locations statewide raised more than $720,000.00.
This is the second of three main efforts by the Department to raise money for the Special Olympics. On February 18, 2018, six VHPD representatives participated in the Polar Plunge and raised $850.00 in donations. The third event takes place on June 10th, when Department members will run a three-mile leg through Vernon Hills in the Torch Run for the Special Olympics.
“The members of the Vernon Hills Police Department hope to see you at our Cops on Rooftop event,” said Officer Courtney Blaul, event coordinator. “Stop by, say hello and help support a great cause.”
