The 11th annual "Cop On Top" with the Bloomington Police Department and B104 to benefit the Illinois Torch Run for Special Olympics remains the #1 "Cop On Top" event in the state.
This is the 11th year that Bloomington Police Officers Todd Kiel and Bill Wright have climbed up on the roof of Dunkin' Donuts on East Okland Avenue in Bloomington to raise awareness for the Illinois Law Enforcement's Torch Run and funds to benefit Special Olympics of Illinois. B104 personalities have joined them on the roof broadcasting and help raise that awareness and the funds.
Today (6/12) from 6am to 6pm the Bloomington "Cop On Top" event once again took place. On behalf of the Bloomington Police Department, Special Olympics of Illinois and everybody at B104, we want to say "Thank You" to every business and individual who contributed in any way to make the event another success.
The Bloomington-Normal community came together and donated over $9,000 to the Bloomington "Cop On Top" event to keep it at the top of all "Cop On Top" events across the entire state of Illinois. More importantly, the money raised will be used to help the athletes and their families of Special Olympics right here in Illinois and Bloomington-Normal.
Again, "Thank You" to everybody who helped make the event a huge success!
