Dunkin’ Donuts, partners with local Clover Hill High School student, Bryce Badura, for the 4th Annual Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins Run to raise funds for the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to make life better for children with cancer. ASK provides financial, spiritual, social and emotional support directly to children with cancer and their families.
Seventeen year old high school senior, Bryce Badura, began this event in 2011 to honor a close friend who was diagnosed with Leukemia. Now in its fourth year, Bryce, along with ASK have set a goal of 1,500 participants, which has the potential to raise over $45,000 for the foundation. All proceeds from the family friendly 5k run and walk will benefit the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. The charity race, for the kids of ASK, is hosted by the students at Clover Hill High School and the Varsity Outreach Club. Dunkin’ Donuts will provide the Munchkins along the course as well as free coffee, donuts, and breakfast sandwiches for the post-race “Celebration Breakfast.”
“Dunkin’ Donuts is thrilled to sponsor the 4th annual Munchkins Run in 2014. We love supporting Richmond families and are so glad all of the funds raised for ASK are aiding children in our local community. The Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins Run is great fun for all ages,” said Dunkin’ Donuts Richmond franchisee, Starla Taylor. Bryce first approached Taylor in 2011 to sponsor the race, and they have been partners ever since.
