The 3rd Annual Dount Dash to benefit Sutter Children's Center's Child Life Program has been set for Saturday, March 19.

The Donut Dash Run starts at the corner of Freeport Blvd., and Sutterville donut dash.jpgRd. Participants will run, jog or walk two miles through shady Land Park to Marie's Donuts, eat four donuts (or six donut holes or nothing at all) and then two miles back.

All proceeds go to support the Child Life Program at Sutter Memorial Hospital to help pay for art supplies, toys, movies, video games, etc to benefit the children during their hospital stay.

Zack Wandell, a volunteer in the Child Life Program at Sutter Memorial Hospital since September 2004, started the Donut Dash in 2009 and raised $1,500. In 2010 they raised $3,000. This year Zach hopes to raise at least $5,000 by getting more runners and sponsors. If you are looking for a way to support the great work of Sutter's Child Life Program visit the Donut Dash's website, Facebook site or Active.com registration page!
