Be a "Donuter Supporter" this weekend for the Children's Hospital

N.C. State University's newest (and perhaps most infamous) tradition, the Krispy Kreme Challenge, returns for a sixth year on Saturday, Feb. 6, to raise money for N.C. Children's Hospital. Although runner registration is full, you can still support the cause by signing up to be a "Donuter supporter" for $10 and get a commemorative event T-shirt.

The race takes place in downtown Raleigh. Beginning at the N.C. State Bell Tower, challengers run two miles to the Krispy Kreme store located on Peace Street in Raleigh and, after downing a full dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, must run the two miles back. All in one hour.

The K2 Challenge attracts a wide range of runners from beginners to serious competitors hailing from all corners of the country. Last year's Challenge raised $40K for the Children's Hospital, but with an expected participation of 6,000 runners (the largest group to date), NCSU organizers are expecting the 2010 race to be the greatest and most beneficial race yet.
