ANNOUNCEMENT: Donut Dash 5K and Mini-Donut Dash Cancelled/Virtual Race

It is with regret that we are cancelling the Donut Dash 5K and Mini-Donut ½ Mile Dash on May 9. With Governor Walz’s directive to close all Minnesota schools through March 27 and follow social distancing, we are following advice from the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health in regards social distancing and not hosting any events of more than 50 people for eight weeks. We never would have thought it would come to this, but we must be safe, responsible, and do our part to help slow the Covid19 virus down.  

Our annual Donut Dash is a fundraiser for Eagle Ridge Academy, providing support for our highest priority needs at the Academy. While we cannot have a physical race, we want to offer the following options:

1.      Stay in the Race:  Your registration fee will be honored at the 2021 Donut Dash on May 8, 2021. You will be automatically registered and notified in January 2021.

2.      Participate in the Virtual Donut Dash:  Participate by walking or running your own 5K or ½ mile race at your own leisure this spring and:
                -Receive your race shirt
                -Take photos and/or video of your run and share with Eagle Ridge Academy for a chance to be entered into drawings for $25 and $50 gift cards and Donut                        Dash water bottles from May 1 to June 1. Photos and video will be shared on our social media with your permission
                -Each registrant will be given a coupon for a FREE Donut.

3.      Opt out of the race and designate your registration fees as a tax-deductible donation to Eagle Ridge Academy.

We will keep registration open for Virtual Race or donation only. More information will be shared in coming weeks. In the meantime, we thank you for your understanding and ‘donut’ let this stop you from running your best race!

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the May 9, 2021 Donut Dash and look forward to having you join us. You will be automatically registered and notified in January 2021.

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. Participate by running or walking the 5K or 1/2 mile distance on your own, take video and/or photos, share with Eagle Ridge Academy on Facebook for a chance to win weekly prizes May 1 through June 1. 

Registrants will receive their race shirt and a coupon for a complimentary donut. 

As the Donut Dash is a fundraising event, your registration fee will be considered a tax-deductible donation and will be receipted as such. We deeply appreciate your generosity.
