Event Description

In honor of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Brightpoint (formerly Children's Home & Aid) and the Granite City Police Department invite you to participate in our race to end child abuse. Proceeds from this event will benefit the programs and services offered by the Southern Region of Brightpoint.

Overview:  Our 4th Annual Kids & Cops Doughnut Run is a day of fun and awareness, offering both a competitive 5K and non-competitive 1 Mile Walk/Run. The 5K is a great option for those looking for a challenge, but this is also the perfect event for those looking for a fun day out with the family, a walk in a beautiful park, and/or a way to support a good cause. Prior to the race intro at 9:15am, we will have refreshments, music, kid's activities, the opportunity to explore first response vehicles, as well as a photo opp with our always awesome mascot, The GIANT Doughnut Man!
