Krispy Kreme, Peace Street

Krispy Kreme Doughnut

Last Year the fun run raised $40,000 for N.C. Children's Hospital. This year the sold out event had 6,000 entrants registered. That amounts to 72,000 doughnuts, which were all lined up on table after table on both sides of Peace Street. Not everyone has the stomach to run four miles and eat twelve doughnuts, actually not everyone has the stomach to eat twelve doughnuts. I do not have the stomach to run four miles! The event has become known for the many people who lose their lunch or breakfast as they valiantly try and raise some money.

The event started in 2004 with a mere handful of runners and in a few short years has become a major event with 5,500 participants in 2009. The event is a  N.C. State University student organised event to raise money to benefit N.C. Childrens Hospital.  

For those of you planning to be here for next years event a dozen doughnuts has 2,400 calories, 144 grams of fat, 120 grams of sugar, and 1,140 milligrams of sodium...but who's counting besides with all that running!

The run is ranked number 85 on Sports Illustrated 102 More Things You Gotta Do Before You Graduate!
