(BEDFORD) - The Starstrong Donut-a-thon 5K For a Cure will take place Nov. 17 at 9 a.m. on the Bedford North Lawrence campus and today is the last day to register to guarantee a T-shirt and donuts

The run/walk is a fundraiser for Starstrong, a student organization that raises money and awareness for cancer organizations.

Nearly 200 people participated in the 2011 inaugural Donut-a-thon and raised more than $3,000.

Leisa Deckard, Starstrong adviser says proceeds from this year's run/walk will be divided among Riley Hospital for Children, Make a Wish Foundation and Cookies for Kids' Cancer, which supports pediatric cancer research.

Participants can choose from a couple of categories:

Challenger: Run half the race, eat a dozen donuts, then finish race, one-hour time limit.

Challenger team: Two-person team. One person runs half the race, teammate eats the donuts, and runner finishes the race.

Slacker: Run or walk, get a box of donuts halfway through and finish the race carrying the box with you. No time limit.

Cheerleader: Show up, support the cause, get donuts and T-shirt.

The 5K is open to anyone. Individuals pay $20, teams, $30.

Entry forms available at BNL, Hibbetts in Williams Crossing and by clicking on a link at

Race day registration accepted, but no guarantee of donuts.
