Friday May 19 from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m., law enforcement officers statewide will "stake out" Dunkin Donuts rooftops to support Special Olympics Ohio.

Anyone who visits the officers and makes a donation will receive a free donut. Anyone donating $10 or more will get a special Law Enforcement Torch Run/Dunkin Donuts travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for a free medium coffee, according to the news release.

It's all to raise awareness and donations for the annual Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics.

Other activities will vary by Dunkin Donuts locations, according to the news release.

“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 the news release.
