Welcome to the Doughnuts For the Heart Challenge!

The Third Annual "Doughnuts For The Heart" Challenge scheduled for February 9, 2014 at Wickham Park in Brevard County, Florida has been postponed. The organizing committee suffered multiple scheduling conflicts that led them to conclude that it was in the best interests of the event and the participants to cancel the February 9th, 2014 run.

All sponsors and participants are being sent a full refund, including any online charges. An anonymous donor (thank you to them!) has covered the expenses to date and is paying the online charges on behalf of the committee. This postponement will have zero impact on the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory.

A new date will be selected and planned, most likely in the fall of 2014. We will send out an update in May 2014.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at 321-501-1380.

Thank you for your support.


The Cardiac Research Institute (CRI) at the Masonic Medical Research Laboratory (MMRL) is an internationally recognized biomedical research institute. For its size, there are few institutes worldwide whose innovative research is as productive and influential in the field of experimental cardiology. In recent years, the MMRL has become an international center for genetic screening of cardiac arrhythmia diseases, especially those contributing to sudden death syndromes, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). The MMRL is blazing new trails in the development of safe and effective drugs for atrial fibrillation, addressing one of the greatest unmet medical needs facing our society. With its recent inauguration of a Stem Cell Center, the CRI/MMRL is making rapid progress in the creation of human models of disease focused on development of innovative therapies and cures.

On the other hand, doughnuts are found all over the world too and are considered international! That is why we feel they go together for a fun way to raise awareness and money for this worthy charity.

We want to help all mankind, and by helping the CRI/ MMRL you are helping too.

Thank you for your support.
