5th Annual Take Part Donut Run

Run, Walk, Crawl

…Eat a Donut?

At the Take Part Donut Run, We Encourage It All!

Join us September 10th, 2022 for our 5th Annual Donut Run! 

On September 10th, 2022 friends from all over the world will be participating from their respective locations in the Fifth Annual Take Part Donut Run! 5 years ago, we wanted to do something a little different…but a lot of fun. Run AND eat donuts at the same time! Some people may think we’re crazy, but we know its for a great cause!


Anyone and everyone is welcome!


Run/Walk/Crawl…whatever you feel like doing + maybe eat some donuts along the way!


September 10th, 2022 – if you’re local: 11AM – 2PM 

All participants must check in 11-11:30 AM then can run their race on their own time. We encourage those running the half marathon to arrive as early as possible (this is to beat the heat + give ample time to run!)

All food trucks, vendors and our live DJ will be there from 11 AM-on. Bring the family and make it a fun all-day event!


If you are in the St. Louis area, we will be at the Frankie Martin’s Gardens in Cottleville!

If you are participating anywhere else in the world, you can choose your route! You can gather your own people locally and make it a fun event! If you need help organizing, let us know – we LOVE helping!


To come together and raise money that supports research for very rare pediatric diseases! Oftentimes, research that results in life-changing therapies for kids with very rare diseases go unfunded because of the small number of people known to have one particular disease. But together, these very rare diseases affect thousands of young people worldwide! This matters to us.

So, here are the delicious details on how YOU can participate – mix and match any of these running/walking combos with one, two, or 13 donuts!

The Donut Hole:1 Mile Run/Jog/Walk

Level Up: Eat 1 donut or donut hole during your run!

The Glaze5K Run/Jog/Walk

We know, it’s pretty dang silly to eat donuts while we run. But sometimes it takes a little silly and a whole lot of heart to create MEGA awareness and help our kids fight for possible!
