Donut Challenge vs. Non- Donut Challenge
Donut Challenge - Not your typical 5K! Participants take on the challenge of consuming a dozen donut holes halfway, before racing back to the finish.
Non-Donut Challenge - Make the 5K run/walk as competitive or fun as you like! Donut worry, there will be plenty of donuts to enjoy after the race.

Virtual 5k - Not able to make the race but still want to support an awesome cause? We've gone virtual! Here's how it works:
1. Register for the virtual race by March 16th.
2. Receive a customizable race bib, finisher’s medal, and t-shirt in the mail.
3. Run anytime the week of March 17th-23rd, go for a run. Any run. Any distance. Anywhere. Wear your shirt and bib – or don’t! Eat donuts to your heart’s content or woof down a salad. Whatever works. And if you want to post on social media, even better! Use hashtag #CCDD25

About Teachers Treasures

Teachers' Treasures is a not-for-profit that obtains and distributes school supplies free to teachers of students in need. Since 2000, $94 Million worth of school supplies have been distributed.

Every day at public, private, charter, and parochial schools located throughout Marion County, children of all ages attend class without the most basic supplies they need to get a good education. Dedicated teachers are often willing to pay for these much needed supplies out of their own pockets to make sure the kids in their classrooms have the necessary tools to learn. On average, teachers spend $800-$1200 a year on school supplies for their students.

Teachers’ Treasures, in partnership with local businesses, charitable foundations, neighborhood organizations and individual contributors, helps fill this need by operating a volunteer-based “Store for Teachers.”  Donated educational supplies and other materials are distributed via this unique conduit to teachers for the benefit of their students. We serve teachers from any school (public, private, charter, or parochial) in Marion County and the immediately surrounding school districts with 60% of more of the student population on the free or reduced lunch programs are eligible.

More than 270 schools with a total of over 100,000 students meet this criteria.

Nearly 6,000 teachers participate in the program annually.
