Empower House 5K and Fall festival to benefit local brain injury survivors
The Empower House’s Spooktacular 5K and Fall Festival is shaping up to an amazing annual fundraising event. The response from the Quad Cities community has been amazing! The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for Empower House — A Brain injury Clubhouse of the Quad Cities located in Downtown Davenport. Proceeds for the event help support programming for the non-profit. Empower House is the only brain injury Clubhouse in the State of Iowa and supports local brain injury survivors by providing a space three days per week to work on every day tasks and skills in the areas of cooking, business, and maintenance — skills important to thrive in life. They also work on socialization, confidence, independence and problem-solving. The environment provides a positive atmosphere for adult brain injury survivors to continue learning and improving after traditional medical therapy.
The festival will run from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on October 8th at Quinlan Court, 101 East River Drive, Davenport, Iowa. The race is for registered participants (registration for children 10 and under is optional.) There is a team challenge for the race. Anyone, friends, family or coworkers can form a team. Your team could win a prize for the largest team!
