Beltway Church has partnered with Mustang Donuts for a 4k Donut Dash in support of local foster agency, New Horizons.
The Donut Dash is a 4k organized by ACU alumna Kelsey Holson, in partnership with Mustang Donuts and Beltway Church, in support for Abilene-local foster agency, New Horizons.
Participants will run halfway and stop for donuts before running the remainder of the 4k.
The event was organized by Kelsey Holson to raise money for backpacks for the kids adopted through New Horizons.
Kelsey Holson and husband, Cam Holson, are foster parents who joined Beltway in creating the first Donut Dash with the intent to purchase and fill 250 backpacks with essential items for kids adopted through New Horizons. Gaining support from Pest Patrol, they are looking to gain additional donation money, seeing it as a definite possibility.
Runners who participate in the event will make the 1.2-mile trek from University Church of Christ to Mustang Donuts where they will choose to eat either six glazed donut holes or 3 full glazed donuts and must make the same trip back.
“The Donut Dash is overall a fun way to get the community involved in New Horizons,” said Erika Sabb, marriage and family graduate student. “Children will be blessed with backpacks! I think this event is pretty creative…I am excited to both get a good run in and eat a few donuts.”
Kelsey and Cam Holson are ACU alumni of the school and men’s and women’s basketball teams, thus finding support from our current teams as well. The women’s team will be serving donuts to the runners while the men’s team will be directing traffic away from the runners.
Mustang Donuts will not be the only food-provider as Nikki’s Swirl Shoppe will also be at UCC at 7 a.m. catering for anyone shows up prior to the race.
Participation cost is $15 for adults, $10 for children and an additional $10 to purchase a backpack with school supplies, reusable water bottles and more.
