QC United and Pete the Purple Bull’s Kindness Rocks campaign is in full swing!

The Run with the Bull 5K and Youth Relays scheduled for this Saturday Oct 13 have been cancelled. Due to the unfortunate Midwest weather we have been experiencing, the original race route is currently being taken over by the Mighty Mississippi.

The good news? The race has been rescheduled! The rescheduled race date is Saturday Nov 17 at 9 a.m. Thanks to the wonderful people at Arconic, the new route will be located near Arconic and the bike path (265 Bellingham Road Riverdale).

Participants will be treated to Burritos and Beer to enhance the positive vibe! Fleet Feet Sports will also offer each registered runner a “Buddies, not Bullies” coupon. Stop in the store (4257 Elmore Ave. Davenport) with a friend, and you BOTH get $15 OFF a footwear purchase or $10 OFF an apparel purchase.

Hot chocolate and schnapps have been added as an incentive, as well! Stay warm while running for an anti-bullying world!
