Running event to satisfy donut cravings, do-gooders

Forget goodies at the finish line - one upcoming run is putting sweets right in the middle of the race.

The March 27 Donut Dash 2.0 will start at 8:30 a.m. at the corner of Freeport Boulevard and Sutterville Road and lead runners, joggers and walkers through two miles of Land Park to Marie's Donuts, according to Sutter spokesman Gary Zavoral.

Participants then eat four donuts or 6 donut holes (or if your stomach can't handle fritters and fitness at the same time, nothing at all) and follow the same route back to the park.

Proceeds benefit the Child Life Program at Sutter Memorial Hospital, which provides support for hospitalized children and their families.

The money raised will be used to help purchase art supplies, toys, movies, video games and items for child patients, he said.

Cost is $40 per individual or $70 per family.

The first 125 participants will receive a T-shirt.
