WEST ASHLEY, S.C. (WCIV) — On Saturday, March 23rd, the 4th Annual Doughnut Dash honoring TyWanza Sanders will be held in Charleston. The race starts at 9 am in the South Windermere Center in West Ashley.

The community supported, family friendly run/walk is held each year in honor of the life and legacy of TyWanza Sanders, who died in the Mother Emanuel Church shooting on June 16, 2015.


The event is put on by Race 4 Achievement Inc. with support from the Charleston Jewish Community Center. The run/walk is a fundraiser for both organizations to continue their missions of strengthening the community and supporting diversity in the Charleston community. A portion of the funds raised will also be donated to the TyWanza Sanders Scholarship Fund, which provides college scholarships for students in Charleston County Schools.


During the race, individuals will run/walk from South Windermere Shopping Center down the Greenway to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts where they will eat a dozen doughnuts and run/walk back!

Registration includes a #Race4Wanza Doughnut Dash T-Shirt and a Doughnut Dash swag bag. CLICK HERE for more information.
