Davenport, Iowa - The Quad Cities will come together to run for the green at the 2017 CASI St. Patrick’s Day Race on Saturday, March 18, 2017 to benefit the Center for Active Seniors, or CASI, as it is known to so many.

In its 35th year, CASI’s St. Patrick’s Day Race, presented by Russell Construction, is THE major fundraiser for CASI last year raising nearly $100,000 for vital senior services including the senior emergency food pantry, fans for seniors and Jane’s Place adult day services program.

New this year!

Held on Friday, March 17 from 1:00-6:00 p.m. on the FIGGE Bechtel Plaza, the “Fit and Fun” Expo will feature area fitness clubs, trainers, running clubs and other races as a great place to learn more and get fit this spring. Space is still available for vendors. Call 563-386-7477.

New Location for the Iowa American Water After Party

Due to construction downtown, the CASI St. Patrick’s Day Race after party will be located on the FIGGE Bechtel Plaza this year and includes Irish music and a bagpiper for entertainment. Back by popular demand are snacks and beer (for our participants over age 21).

Warm-ups provided by Orange Theory Fitness 30 minutes prior to each race. Look for the Orange Theory tent located in the FIGGE parking lot. Great way to prep for your race – all ages welcome.

“Led by a friendly leprechaun, 3,000 runners and walkers race through downtown Davenport to help raise funds to support CASI’s mission of providing services to senior citizens in the Quad Cities,” said Laura Kopp, President/CEO of CASI.  “With the luck of the Irish on our side, 2017 will be our largest race yet.”

Programs available through CASI include Senior Advocacy services to more than 1,300 seniors annually in addition to daily activities, community forums, fitness and health initiatives, educational sessions and much more. All proceeds raised benefit CASI programs.

Don’t want to run? Our “Ghost” race registration allows everyone to help support seniors.  As a ghost, you don’t actually participate in the race. Instead, your $30 registration is a donation which includes a t-shirt available during packet pickup and the peace of mind knowing you, too, are helping Quad City seniors.
