Changed to a Virtual Run due to COVID-19
COVID-19 Email Update
It is with a heavy heart that we have to send this email, as we have been doing everything possible on our end to ensure it would not be necessary. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and updated CA state policies the 2020 Fresno Donut Run will only be a Virtual Run and no physical event will be taking place.
We have been closely tracking the updates and guidelines issued by our federal and local governments regarding the current state and transmission of COVID-19 in California. While we were hoping to deliver a fun and successful event, early this morning Governor Gavin Newsom updated the policy on public gatherings, including outdoor events, limiting the number to no more than 250 individuals, and is effective in all counties of California. The ban applies to all non-essential professional, social and community gatherings regardless of their sponsor and is effective for the rest of this month.
All entrants will still receive a race shirt, medal, and race bib that will be mailed out
There will NOT be a packet pickup.
Even though the race is now virtual we will still be able to donate funds from the event to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley, which is the main reason we’re all running for Donuts.
Unfortunately, there will be no refunds or credits for this race. All entry fees used in the production of a race this size are paid in advance of the event date. The Fresno Donut Run is organized by a 2 person team, with race day help, and an incredible community of volunteers. We are not a large enough organization, with substantial financial sponsors, to secure deferrals or refunds. We will not be benefiting from this cancellation -- it's quite the opposite. This is an unexpected global event, and we must commit to keeping our community members safe.
We greatly appreciate everyone's understanding in these trying and difficult times.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley provides a “Home away from Home” and resources to children and families receiving medical care at Valley Children’s Hospital. Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support.
Located adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital, our 22,000 sq. ft. House is a refuge for families with children receiving treatment.
Each night 18 families call our House, their Home. Our House was built with the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child-not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
