The proceeds from the 2018 race will go to help support Uptown Bill's, which is sponsored by the non-profit group Extend the Dream Foundation.
RiverRun 2018 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.
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.
