The Cops on the Roof fundraising events for Special Olympics that featured doughnut eating contests and days of police atop the Rock Hill Krispy Kreme raised a record in 2014 that topped $15,000.

The Cops on the Roof is part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run campaign. Combining corporate sponsorships with individual donations, the police raised $15,012.91 this year to set a new benchmark for Area 11 Special Olympics, said Det. Phil Trip of the Rock Hill Police Department, who is one of the organizers. Volunteers from area businesses including Kohl’s and Sam’s Club pitched in atop the roof and with business and individual donations.

The money helps put on the annual April games locally and helps athletes pay for trips to state, national, and international games.
