ELKHART, Ind. (WNDU) - Indiana law enforcement were stationed at several Dunkin' locations throughout the state for the annual Cop on a Rooftop fundraiser Friday.

Officers were up bright and early at the Nappanee Street Dunkin' in Elkhart, raising funds for Special Olympics Indiana.

Unfortunately, due to rain and lightning, the officers didn't make it to the rooftop. But that did not stop anyone from having a good time.

The annual fundraiser for Indiana law enforcement Torch Run benefits the Special Olympics Indiana. This year's Special Olympics Indiana fundraisers are aiming to surpass last year's total of $10,884.

"Every penny helps," Elkhart Police Chief Chris Snyder said. "These athletes are special athletes, They mean a lot to us. So, any penny that we can give to them and helps their cause is what we want to do."

Each guest who made a donation to the Torch Run received a free doughnut.

The fundraiser was not limited to our area. Fifteen other locations in Indiana took part in the national program.
