On Friday, August 19, from 5 a.m. to noon, hundreds of law enforcement officers throughout the state will stake out Dunkin’ rooftops to raise awareness and donations for the Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit Special Olympics Illinois. Lombard police officers will be at the following three (3) Lombard Dunkin’ locations: 1160 S Main St, 411 E North Ave, and 85 Yorktown Shopping Ctr.
All guests who donate to the Torch Run will receive a coupon for a free donut. Guests who donate $10 or more will receive a LETR/ Dunkin’ branded travel mug (while supplies last) and a coupon for a free medium hot coffee. Lombard officers will also have Torch Run merchandise for sale with proceeds benefiting Special Olympics.
This year marks the 20th Anniversary of the Dunkin’ and Illinois Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics Illinois partnership. This partnership has been a huge success over the years; in fact, more than $6.7 million has been raised in Illinois!
In 2021, nearly $870,000 was raised across 283 locations. This year’s goal is to build on that tremendous accomplishment from 2021 and to raise more than $900,000 for the athletes of Special Olympics Illinois.
