Golf scramble will raise money for Project Outrun Iowa, which helps kids with cancer

Project Outrun Iowa will host golf scramble and after party to raise money for children in the Quad City region who are battling childhood cancer.

Project Outrun aims to empower children by designing custom Nike shoes to help them avoid cancer. It costs about $ 100 for each child to design their own pair. The event will raise money to serve more children.

Based in the Quad Cities, Project Outrun Iowa is the nonprofit’s first official chapter. The Iowa chapter was founded just a year ago and has already designed custom shoes for 45 kids, a press release says.

“The golf outing and after-party will help raise awareness in the Quad City community about Project Outrun and help raise the necessary funds to impact the lives of children in the community. Come out and enjoy the golf event, after party or both! This will be such a fun time and will benefit the children of Project Outrun, ”said Anthony Long, director of Project Outrun Iowa.

The scramble will take place Saturday, May 22 at Short Hills Country Club, 2500 11th St, East Moline.
