Run for donuts — and for the kids!

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2022 | 9 a.m.

This special event is part of One Big Weekend at Hope College — and all proceeds benefit Dance Marathon, which raises funds for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. 

This 5K course takes you on a tour of Hope’s campus (with donut holes at the aid stations) before returning to the Ray & Sue Smith stadium for an exciting finish on the 50 yard line! Registration fees include professional chip timing, a long sleeved t-shirt, and donuts along the route and at the finish line.
