Looking for a way to enjoy the nice weather the Triangle is so overdue for? Consider taking your kids to the Krispy Kreme Challenge 2009 and explaining why 5,038 registered adults willfully run a 2 mile race for charity. Oh did I forget to mention that at the halfway point, each runner is expected to eat a 1 dozen Krispy Kreme original glazed donuts? Organized by students of NC State, each participant runs to raise funds for the NC Children’s Hospital.

01.20.09 ESPN at Krispy Kreme Challenge
We are pleased to say that ESPN will be coming to the Krispy Kreme Challenge this year! It might be YOU they catch eating a dozen fresh doughnuts at the 2009 race!
01.20.09 Parking for the race
So we’ve gotten many emails about parking on race day this year. We are avidly working to make parking as easy as possible. We hope to have volunteers pointing the way to the best parking. If you want a heads up, your best bet is Reynolds Coliseum Deck in the middle of campus. Most parking on campus is open during the weekends too, just look for signs.
While I avoid Krispy Kreme like the plague, not because they are “bad” but because I know my limitations, I encourage TriangleJr readers to get out and get involved with the challenge or any other fundraiser.
