The history of the race

The Donut Run was started in honor of and memory of Steve Roach who passed away from a brain tumor. He would always encourage his children to Be Happy and ever now and again you needed to Eat Dessert First. Steve loved Baker's pride and with his last months he made it a point to enjoy lots of sweet treats from the bakery including blueberry fritters. A little silliness, a kind answer, and a loving spirit is all part of his legacy to encourage our community.
