Shipley Do-Nuts started a new tradition four years ago that we hope to continue well into the future. Our fourth annual Do-Nut Dash is slated to take place on Saturday, April 14th and this is going to be our best year yet. We welcome you and your family to be part of the fun.
What is the Do-Nut Dash?
The Do-Nut Dash is a two-mile walk/run that starts at 9 AM at BBVA Compass Stadium and ends at the 8th Wonder Brewery. Adults can join to participate for $30 and kids for $20 (little ones may ride in strollers or wagons). All proceeds will be given to Kids’ Meals to help them continue their work. Participants not only get the pleasure of knowing they are helping a worthy organization, but will enjoy participation gifts such as free t-shirts, discounted baseball tickets, and chances to win a year’s worth of Shipley Do-Nuts and concert tickets.
What is Kids’ Meals?
Kids’ Meals is a non-profit organization that realized our youngest citizens, those still too young for school, often get over-looked when free meal programs are created to help them get at least one nutritional meal each day. Kids’ Meals has made it their mission to home deliver upwards of 2,700 meals a day to these children, who are often in homes where the parents can’t always provide the meals they need. These children are able to count on at least one nutritionally sound meal a day, five days a week. One hundred percent of the profits made during our fourth annual Do-Nut Dash will go to this program, which has benefited from over $55,000 from our previous three years.
The After Party
The after party of this annual event is often the most fun. All participants will receive a t-shirt along with free milk and donuts. In addition, children can get their faces painted and participate in a donut-themed costume contest that will grant the winner a year’s worth of donuts from Shipley Do-Nuts. Those over the age of 21 will get a free beverage from 8th Wonder Brewery. We want to make sure that all of our participants feel great about giving back to the community as well as have a blast throughout the process.
See You at the Finish Line!
You are invited to join in on what we hope is going to be our biggest and best year yet. Avoid the registration lines by signing up online before the event. Shipley Do-Nuts has been serving smiles since 1936. Help us and Kids’ Meals spread those smiles even further with our newest generation. See you on April 14th, rain or shine!
