10th Annual Cardinal Strut Race - Feb 16th, 2019

Supporting Greater Wilmington's Children with Cancer

We are celebrating 10 years of the Cardinal Strut with a PARTY and DOUGHNUTS!! Join us for the 10th Annual Cardinal Strut Doughnut 5K Run and Walk being held on February 16th at Holly Tree Elementary School field to benefit Greater Wilmington area families dealing with a Pediatric Cancer Diagnosis. Run, walk, skip or strut your way across our 5K course through the Woodberry Forest neighborhood while enjoying Krispy Kreme doughnut holes at our water stops. KK Doughnuts, hot chocolate and coffee await the 5K finishers at the Strut for Kids After Party.

Doughnut eating is optional! Having a great day is mandatory!
