Check out all the FUN these 340 race participants had on the day of the race
 2015 I AM STRONG 5K Mudventure!

I AM Strong is a women-only mudventure race with a combination of adventure and mud racing with over 20 obstacles such as tire flips, rope pulls, balance challenges and many more! Junior League of the Quad Cities hosts the annual I AM Strong Mudventure Race each August. 
There are recreational and competitive divisions for all levels of ability, including walkers, with the goal being to support one another and accomplish a challenge together. 100% of race entry fees go to Junior League of the Quad Cities and area non-profit organizations. In 2013, JLQC raised $10,000 for Braking Traffik and in 2014, JLQC raised $10,000 for Family Resources' Bridge House.  In 2015, we raised $5,000 each for the Child Abuse Council and the Scott Community College Foundation Women’s Giving Network

Why "I AM Strong"?

The women’s-only race was designed to build awareness of JLQC’s purpose, advance on the mission of our I AM Initiative and raise funds for organizations that are supporting and empowering women in our community. After a recent study of the most-pressing issues currently facing the women and children of the Quad Cities, we realized a root cause of many of these issues is the negative way in which women and girls see themselves and are viewed by others. In order to improve the perception and self-image of women through leadership and empowerment, JLQC developed its I AM Initiative.

The I AM Strong Mudventure Race offers women an opportunity to bond and support one another through a fun, but physically challenging exercise while collaborating with area businesses to support local charities that positively impact our community by improving the lives of women and girls.

Thank you to our 2015 race sponsors!
