California Sporting Company and the Redding Peace Officer’s Association’s Never Forgotten Games is proud to present you the Donut Hustle Race!
You might be asking yourself, what is a “Donut Hustle,” and how do I do it?
Well, the Donut Hustle is a combination of a mile run and gastrointestinal fortitude... can you eat donuts and still run? There will be three total laps around Memorial Park, and before you start each lap, you MUST finish a full donut!!
This first annual event will benefit The Officer Down Memorial Page, Inc., (ODMP). ODMP is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring America's fallen law enforcement heroes. More than 24,000 officers have made the ultimate sacrifice in the United States since 1786 and ODMP is honored to preserve their memories and give friends, family, other officers, and citizens alike the opportunity to remember them and honor their sacrifices.
This event is incredibly FUN and is for the entire family! And if you’re you are not up to downing donuts and sprinting, the spectator option is almost just as fun! Are you amped up for this event?? We are!
Where will this Donut Hustle happen? City of Redding, City Hall! Participants will start near the front of City Hall.
The children’s race will be held at the City Hall Fountain, and each lap will be around the fountain. Parents, you’ll be happy to know that children will get donut holes instead of a full donut (you’re welcome!) 2 laps for age 6 and under, and 4 laps for ages 7-12. The adults will be running their laps around Memorial Park. Public service departments (Police, Fire, District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office. One runner per department) will have the opportunity to compete against other the departments for the coveted “Donut Trophy." The department that raises the most money, will get to showcase the trophy in their office... until the next year when they will have the chance to defend their honor... and the trophy! Civilians (Cadets) will get their own trophy for the highest fundraiser and children (JR Cadets) will also be running for chance to win their own donut trophy for and a with an incredible donation from The Bike Shop of Redding, the biggest JR Cadet fundraiser will also win a new bike!
Racing begins at 9 AM!
So sign up today, set up your fundraising page and get ready to join us for a morning full of FUN and donuts!!
