Yay, make some noise!
The SIXTH annual Circle City Donut Dash 5K is “on the run”– moving past COVID and now, moving forward.
Margaret Sheehan, Executive Director Teachers Treasures, tells us about the event that helps support teachers and local schools in getting them the supples they need.
In past years, Teachers’ Treasures has been able to distribute as much as $5 million in free school supplies, in part due to the proceeds from the Donut Dash.
This year’s race will be a bit different with COVID-19 prevention requirements. The number of runners will be limited to 500 and a virtual option is available. As in years past, the 5K will continue to include two options: a main race, featuring a halfway point challenge where participants attempt to eat a dozen donut holes, and a non-donut-challenge race, where participants can enjoy the donuts afterward. Another change to the 2021 event is that the after-party, which offers coffee-infused beer and bloody Mary’s, not to mention donuts and Hot Box Pizza, will be moving to Fowling Warehouse, a 50,000-square-foot event venue just blocks from Teachers’ Treasures.
Jack’s Donuts Downtown will be supplying the donuts consumed during the event. Sun King Brewery and Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be offering participants one complimentary pint of coffee-infused beer or bloody Mary’s, respectively, at the after party at Fowling.
