The Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual charity event in which participants run a 2.5 mile road course leading to a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop in Raleigh, NC and eat one dozen doughnuts (totaling 2,400 calories and 144 grams of fat), then run back to the finish line in under 1 hour. The event was started in 2004 and is still planned and executed by Park Scholars at North Carolina State University in Raleigh N.C.. Profits from the race are donated to North Carolina Children's Hospital, and the 2014 race brought total donations to $758,000.
I've been running this race since my freshman year in college (this will be my 6th year!) and would really appreciate if you would help me reach my goal and donate to the North Carolina Children's Hospital through this awesome and race that I hope to continue doing every year!
More on the North Carolina Children's Hospital below:
Since its inception, the Krispy Kreme Challenge has been proud to support the North Carolina Children's Hospital, a specialty-designed hospital that caters to the needs of sick or injured children and their families. The mission of the hospital is to provide the highest quality care to patients from all 100 counties in North Carolina, regardless of a family's ability to afford the services.The money we raise goes to help fund additional equipment and support services necessary to provide exceptional care. It makes possible innovative programs that aid in the treatment and care of children suffering from a wide range of illnesses. It also gives patients the chance to just be kids, by playing on the 2-story play atrium or participating in a variety of on-site activities. In addition, the hospital has the state's only fully accredited hospital school, which keeps patients from kindergarten to 12th grade on top of their studies.
