The 7th Annual Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins Run is a fun, donut-popping 5K run/walk the whole family will enjoy while helping to make life better for children with cancer in the Richmond community.

The 5K course winds through the beautiful St. Christopher’s campus and neighborhood where donut eating IS optional… but hard to resist!  Runners enjoy an awesome Dunkin' Donuts breakfast as well as traditional post-race bananas and granola bars. All registered participants will also receive a t-shirt, finisher's medal (NEW), and Dunkin' Donuts coupons and swag.

All proceeds of the Dunkin' Donuts Munchkins Run go to ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. Your participation and support will help to make life better for children with cancer in Central Virginia. 



Kids 5 & under can register for the Donut Dash for $15, complete with a participation medal and a Dunkin' Donuts donut finish. The fun run starts at 8am and will take our youngest donut fans half-way around the St. Christopher's track where they'll end crossing the 5K finish line. We look forward to cheering on our youngest donut fans! 


Life is sweeter with friends.... and donuts. So, why not have both?  Start your team today, round up your friends and you could win one of the many new prizes up for grabs. We'll recognize the largest two teams as well as the top two fundraising teams plus the top individual fundraiser (technically, you don't have to be on a team to earn this spot). 

Whether your team is the Jelly Filled Joggers or the Sprinters for Sprinkles, your efforts will help to provide assistance, support and kindness to children with cancer and their families. If you're wondering, what exactly am I fundraising for? 

Sometimes it's the little things. We know that snacks, toys, crafts, movies, and video games can help long clinic visits go faster. We know that the cost of coming to the hospital every day can add up, so we provide meal tickets and financial assistance. 

Sometimes it's the big things. We provide three important full-time staff members who are dedicated to supporting our patients and their families - a child life therapist, a chaplain and a child psychologist. This team works side by side with the medical staff at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU to make sure our kids and their families receive the support they need from the moment they hear those words, “Your child has cancer.”

And, sometimes it's the smart thing to do. We provide afterschool tutoring and summer enrichment camps to help our kids return to school and stay on grade level with their friends. We want all of our survivors to thrive in the lives they have fought so hard to keep.

Keeping it Local

All funds raised by the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation stay right here in Central Virginia and directly impact the lives of children with cancer and their families. 

Help us reach this year's goal of $55,000 to provide programs for our community's youngest cancer patients and survivors, including:

  • Three staff positions: Child Life Therapist, Chaplain, and Child Psychologist at the ASK Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at VCU
  • Financial assistance to cover expenses like mortgages, car payments, and gas money for families in treatment
  • Weekly after-school tutoring and summer enrichment camps for patients and survivors
  • Social events for ASK kids and their families, like trips to the zoo, bowling, and the annual holiday party
  • Support groups for active patients and our bereaved families

Making life better for kids with cancer. That's really the most important reason we can think of for you to register, donate or volunteer - but read on for more good stuff you'll want to know!
