Both the Crystal Lake and Huntley Police Departments are raising money for Special Olympics on Friday.
Cop On Rooftop
On Friday, May 19, 2017, from 5am to 2pm, officers from the Crystal Lake Police Department will need your assistance in getting down from the roof for the annual statewide event, Cop on Rooftop.
Cop on Rooftop is one of many events dedicated to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics Illinois. Funds raised will provide significant support to the mission.
Through Special Olympics, athletes enhance their physical fitness and motor skills, self-confidence, self-image, friendship and social skills. The athletes carry these benefits with them into their daily lives at home, in the classroom, on the job and in the community.
This year’s event will be held at both Crystal Lake Dunkin’ Donuts locations.
The primary location where officers will be on the roof is 4817 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake.
The secondary Dunkin’ Donuts location is 450 N. IL Route 31, Crystal Lake.
Law Enforcement Torch Run forSpecial Olympics t-shirts and other merchandises will be sold at both locations to help raise funds for Special Olympics Illinois.
