Village of WestmontDate Issued: June 3, 2013
On May 31, Westmont Chief of Police Tom Mulhearn and other officers sat on the roof of the Dunkin’ Donuts on 63rd Street just west of Cass Avenue as part of the Cop On Top Special Olympics fundraiser. There were a total of 151 locations throughout the State of Illinois participating in this event, which is an all-time record.
“The weather cooperated for the most part and we had a great event,” says Chief Mulhearn who has participated in the event for the last several years. “We raised over $1600 and that is the most we’ve ever raised. This is for a great cause and I’m proud to be associated with such a worthwhile effort.” The Cop On Top event is part of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics. All proceeds go directly to Special Olympics Illinois.
This Sunday, June 9, the Special Olympics Torch Run will come through Westmont. They are scheduled to reach the intersection of Cass and Burlington about 9:50 a.m. and then they will proceed north on Cass Avenue past the Police Station. Runners carry the Special Olympics Torch across Illinois and Westmont is one of the stops along the way.
Chief Mulhearn and the Westmont Police Department thank everyone for their support with this event and important cause.
