Sorority to Host Krispy Kreme Challenge


High Point University KD Krispy Kreme ChallengeHIGH POINT, N.C., Oct. 22, 2012 – High Point University’s Kappa Delta sorority is hosting a Krispy Kreme Challenge for the second year in a row at 12 p.m. on Nov. 4 starting at the Slane Student Center outdoor basketball court. Check-in is from 11 to 11:30 a.m. This event is open to the public and registration costs $20.

The Krispy Kreme Challenge is a two mile race where challengers run to the Greek Village, eat a dozen donuts and run back to Slane in under 30 minutes. Challengers will be eligible for prizes; however, participants may also sign up as a casual runner where time is not a factor and donuts may be eaten at their discretion.

The proceeds will benefit the Family Service of the Piedmont (FSP), one of Kappa Delta’s philanthropies. Last year, the event raised more than $3,000, and Kappa Delta hopes to double that amount this year.

“FSP is thrilled to partner with the sisters of High Point University’s Kappa Delta for the second Krispy Kreme Challenge,” says Stephanie Allred, marketing and development specialist for the FSP. “Last year’s race raised more than $3,000 to support victims of child sexual abuse served by Family Service’s Children’s Advocacy Center. We are very appreciative to Kappa Delta and High Point University for hosting this exciting event for another year.”

Parking for the public is available in the Vert Stadium parking lot. To register, go to:
