Thank you for another great Donut Dash! Donut Dash Lucky #7 is verrrrrrry close to donating $77,777.77.

After a successful first Donut Dash in 2009, Donut Dash 501(c)3 was started in 2010 to raise funds for the Child Life Program at Sutter Children's Center, Sacramento. Proceeds from fundraising events are used for programs including Beads of Courage & Music Therapy and activities such as art projects, games, toys, movies, video games, iPads, and exercise equipment. These programs and activities are designed to help children and families cope with their medical experiences, educate children about their illnesses, prepare them for procedures and surgeries, offer normal childhood play experiences, and celebrate holidays and special events during hospitalization.

Every March the Donut Dash is held in Land Park with a stop at Marie's Donuts. Participants start in Land Park then run, jog, or walk 2 miles to Marie's Donuts. At Marie's, participants consume 4 donuts OR 6 donut holes OR nothing at all before making their way back the 2 miles to the start/finish area.

To date, Donut Dash 501(c)3 has donated over $250,000 (through April 2015) to the Child Life Program. Cash & In-kind donation totals include funds raised by the Donut Dash, The Duck Dash, & other events and opportunities.

About Donut Dash 501(c)3
So you feel confident with your donations and participation, Donut Dash 501(c)3 is run entirely by volunteers. Expenses from events are offset by goods and donations from sponsors so that 100% of your registration and/or donation is directed to the Child Life Program. We are committed to funding programs, activities, and "stuff" that children use on a daily basis during hospitalization and procedures. Although important, we do not fund research, medical equipment, or staff positions.
