Get a little muddy and have a lot of fun!CBS4 is supporting the Junior League of the Quad Cities as they host the 3rd annual I AM Strong Mudventure Race on Saturday, August 9, 2014. I AM Strong is a fun running 5K road race with a combination of adventure and mud racing that includes elements of scavenger hunts and various obstacles such as tire flips, rope pulls and balance challenges.
There are recreational and competitive divisions for all levels of ability with the goal being to support one another and accomplish a challenge together. 100% of race entry fees go to Quad City area non-profits. In 2013, JLQC raised $10,000 for Braking Traffik!
Why "I AM Strong"?
The women’s-only race was designed to build awareness of JLQC’s purpose, advance on the mission of our I AM Initiative and raise funds for organizations that are supporting women in our community. After a recent study of the most-pressing issues currently facing the women and children of the Quad Cities, we realized a root cause of many of these issues is the negative way in which women and girls see themselves and are viewed by others. In order to improve the perception and self-image of women, JLQC developed its I AM Initiative.
The I AM Strong Mudventure Race offers women an opportunity to bond and support one another through a fun, but physically challenging exercise while collaborating with area businesses to support local charities that positively impact our community by improving the lives of women and girls.
