Local organizations Teachers’ Treasures and American College of Education will host the third annual Circle City Donut Dash 5K on Saturday, Feb. 17. The walking/running event will begin at 9 a.m. at Teachers’ Treasures at 1800 E. 10th St.
The event supports teachers and local schools, all while providing delicious donuts for participants along the way. The Donut Dash attracts educators, students and community members to a fun event benefitting Teacher’s Treasures, a not-for-profit that obtains and distributes school supplies free to teachers of students in need.
“Not only is the Circle City Donut Dash a really fun event for us, but it allows us to impact Central Indiana schools in a big way,” said Margaret Sheehan, executive director of Teachers’ Treasures. “On average, teachers spend $800 to $1,200 a year on school supplies for their students. Anything we can do to lighten that burden is our goal.”
This year’s race will again include two race options: a main race, featuring a halfway point challenge where participants attempt to down a dozen donut holes, and a non-challenge race, where participants can enjoy the donuts afterwards. Local sponsor Long’s Bakery will be supplying the donuts this year, and Sun King Brewery will be on-site offering one complimentary pint of coffee-infused beer to participants.
