Saturday June 7th, the Friends of Bettendorf Parks Foundation is holding this year's "Run 4 the Hills" cross-country race/walk at Crow Creek park in Bettendorf.  This event is held on one of the best cross-country courses in the Midwest, and there are 3 different course options: a 5K run/walk, a 1-mile run/walk, and a quarter-mile fun run for kids.  There will also be many other activities for the kids who participate, making this a great event for all ages and abilities!  Race proceeds go to the Friends-of-Bettendorf-Parks Foundation, whose mission is to improve the quality of life by assisting in the development and improvement of our recreational amenities.  The foundation also provides funding assistance for programs designed for families with special-needs children.  For more info or to register, go to
