“A Friend Indeed – The Bill Sackter Story” is an inspiring new documentary showing how a forgotten man and an uncommon friendship shattered the world’s perceptions of people with disabilities.
RiverRun 2013 is proud to announce our continued association with Uptown Bill’s Small Mall of Iowa City. Uptown Bill’s is a collection of businesses owned and operated by people with disabilities and staffed by volunteers. The proceeds from the 2013 race will go to help support this organization, which is sponsored by the non-profit group Extend the Dream Foundation.
Extend the Dream
Extend The Dream Foundation (EDF) was founded as a non-profit organization in Iowa in 1997. In 1999 it redefined its target to serve persons with disabilities and the aging. The mission of EDF is to assist these persons in establishing their own micro enterprises and in expanding their employment opportunities. The EDF also attempts to educate the public about "disability" through demonstration projects and media.
