What is Donut Dash?
The Donut Dash was formally known as Run from the Cops and is a 5K run/walk and 1K youth run sponsored by the Watertown Police Department to raise awareness and assistance to people affected by domestic violence.
The goal of this event is to raise awareness and funding for victims of domestic violence. 100% of our proceeds are donated to the victims of domestic abuse. Proceeds from the run since its inception has generated over $103,300. Funding goes directly to victim services.
The Donut Dash offers something for runners of all levels … and it is chip timed. Whether you're a competitive distance runner or want to walk with your kids in the stroller, we encourage everyone to get involved. Join us for a great run that supports a great cause! And of course, enjoy donuts along the way!
