Annual .5K Fun Run
What is a .5K? It’s a short and sweet, inclusive fundraiser where participants “race” for 0.3 miles. Treats, beverages, and activities along the route make this event a playful, “half-the-effort, twice-the-fun” experience. Individuals and teams pay a registration fee and are encouraged to continue raising funds by asking friends, families, and coworkers to donate. Participants can go at their own pace, so feel free to run, walk, or stroll your way to the finish! Look for more information about the date, time, and how to register each spring.
Bags & Bidding
A popular “sport” in the Midwest, everyone loves a bags tournament! This annual fall competition, along with a silent auction, raises funds for The Arc’s general fund to continue providing quality programming. Registration is $40 per team, with teams consisting of two people. Brush up on your bag-tossing skills, support a great organization, and have fun! Watch the calendar for the next tournament.
Our largest fundraiser of the year involves volunteers donating their time to work a concession stand in the University of Iowa Kinnick Stadium. Ten percent of concession stand sales go to The Arc to support programming, advocacy, and family activities. Sign up to work a concession stand, make a difference, and enjoy game day. Go Hawks!
Business Community Days/Nights
Throughout the year, local restaurants support The Arc by donating a percentage of their sales during a certain date and time to our organization. View the Events Calendar to discover a new restaurant or see when your favorite places to dine are benefiting a great cause! Bon Appetit!
