  • 40-49

The overall winner, along with the top three males and females from each age division, will receive a medal of recognition, and all participants will get to celebrate with delicious donuts.

Registration fees are $25 for the Donut Dash 5K and $15 for the Fun Run.

“We would love to have any runners or walkers participate, see our campus, and get an idea of what we do,” says Children’s Home Executive Director Mandy Mitchell. “We want it to be something fun for the community to do, and we’ll keep having it as long as the community supports it.” WL
