RUN, WALK & EAT DONUTS at PERSAD Center's 5K Run & Fun Walk


We’re excited to return to the beautiful South Shore Riverfront Trail for Donut Dash 2016, PERSAD’S 5K Run & Fun Walk. Registration is only $25 and all proceeds benefit PERSAD Center’s services to the LGBTQ communities and people living with HIV. The 5K begins with free coffee & donuts for everyone! Registration is open now.

Go Solo or Form a Team – Choose From: 

• 5K RUN: A timed 5K with prizes for the fastest runners

• 5K WALK: An untimed 5K walk, set your own pace

• 1.5 MILE FUN WALK: Family friendly walk perfect for kids, strollers and dogs  

Once you’ve registered, you can go the extra mile by asking friends to “sponsor” your run/walk with a pledge of financial support on behalf of PERSAD. The top fundraiser will receive 60,000 Wyndham Rewards Points (good for a 4-night stay in hotels worldwide) and the runner-up will receive a $500 Amazon Gift Card.

Join us at the corner of Hot Metal Street & Water Street on the South Side at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 11 for Donut Dash 2016!


Donut Dash 2016 is presented by PNC. Other sponsors include True Runner, Pittsburgh Front Runners and Judge David B. Torrey.
