Officers head to the roof of local doughnut shop to support Special Olympics Illinois

Event raised $1,400 for the athletes

MOLINE, Ill. - Moline police officers headed to the roof of Dunkin' Donuts for a good cause Friday.

It's part of a partnership with the chain to raise money for Special Olympics Illinois. They stood out in the rain at the store on Avenue of the Cities from 5 in the morning until around 2 in the afternoon.

"It really makes a difference with the athletes and we've got to see a lot of athletes that get to benefit from it and it makes a difference in their lives so it feels good to do it," said Moline Police Officer Nate Hoover.

This year's event raised about $14,000 for the athletes.
