Coffee for Champions

Formerly known as Cop on a rooftop, Palos Park Police took part in another successful Coffee for Champions. This is a national event where officers and Special Olympics get together to raise funds for athletes in their local communities.

This year's event took place at the Dunkin Donuts on Rt 45 on August 20, 2021. Palos Park Police officers even got behind the counter to help collect funds. Palos Park Police Officer Ryan Franczak said the event is a way to help out a good cause while being visible and active in the community they serve. "We strive to be a big part of our community and make sure we're reaching out and engaging with our community to work toward always developing positive relationships."

All funds raised go toward the year-round sports training and athletic events held by the Illinois Special Olympics.
