Expo & Virtual Goody Bag
The Running Wild Sports and Fitness Expo is an eagerly anticipated event, attracting over 30,000 runners, walkers, volunteers, families and friends to downtown Davenport, Iowa, every July. This 2-day show features vendors from the health, wellness and fitness industry, including running apparel and gear, nutritional products and injury prevention. Featuring free admission, late registration and the only place to pick up runner’s packets, this is the place to showcase your business. Can’t make it to the event but still want to take part? Learn more about our Virtual Goody Bag option. Contact Expo Director Laurie McGrath today – Bix7Expo@gmail.com
FAMILY CONNECTS: We believe in a strong start for all families. Your charitable donation to Family Connects gives parents with new babies access to specially trained nurses at no charge, so parents and children get a great beginning in life.
BREAST HEALTH: We recognize the important of breast health through two initiatives which remove financial barriers so that women and men can access mammograms and detect breast cancer early. Lindsay’s Legacy goes a step further, helping individuals across the nation get expert diagnoses and treatment specific to Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
