Congratulations to our seniors on their last week of classes! We are so proud of their accomplishments and although this week may look different than it normally would, we celebrate their perseverance and enthusiasm during this challenging time. How are all of you doing? We hope that you are taking time to ask yourself:



  • What am I grateful for today?

  • How will I move today?

  • Who can I help/check on today?

  • How will I get outside today?

  • What’s a nice thing I’ll do for myself today?

Fun College Traditions!

North Carolina State University's Krispy Kreme Challenge blends doughnuts, exercise, and charity to create an exciting campus tradition. The challenge began as a simple dare between students and then turned into a large fundraising event. To complete the challenge, participants must run 2.5 miles to a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts store, eat a dozen donuts, and run back to campus in under an hour. The first Krispy Kreme Challenge took place in 2004! Recently, runners had raised around $1 million through the event. All the profits go to the North Carolina Children's Hospital, and around 10,000 runners take part in the event each year.


This campus tradition has inspired other doughnut-themed races at colleges across the country. Students at the University of Kansas, Florida State University, the University of Kentucky, and the University of North Carolina have all established similar races at their schools.
