ABC was started in 2000 when a group of Berry student-athletes came together and founded the organization aimed at making an impact in the Rome-Floyd County area. The race they are putting on consists of running one mile, then stopping at a designated eating area and eating 12 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, then running another mile.
ABC will host the “Krispy Kreme Challenge” today as a way to raise money for the Fugees Family. The Fugees Family is a non-profit organization based in Clarkston, that works with child survivors of war from all over the world.
The beginnings of the Krispy Kreme Challenge were born in December 2004 as a dare between a few North Carolina State University undergraduate students. The first race took place that same year with just 12 participants. The race is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. today in front of the Cage Center.
