Love to run?  Love doughnuts?  The Krispy Kreme Challenge is the perfect way to get both and help raise money for the United Cerebral Palsy of Huntsville (UCP) organization.

The UCP helps more than 1000 children and their families in north Alabama receive needed health, support and technology services for over 156 disabilities and diagnosis such as Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome and Spinal Cord injuries.

So what is the Krispy Kreme Challenge?

Participants will line up at the starting point in downtown Huntsville, run 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop on North Memorial Parkway, eat a dozen doughnuts, and run the two miles back to downtown.

If running is not your thing they will also have a doughnut eating contest and other events taking place.

Mark your calendars and come out Saturday, November 19th at 8 a.m.
