About Run With Carl...

The Event:
Run with Carl was initiated in 1995, by the Schillig family with the Bettendorf Jaycees as the title sponsor. In 2005, Bettendorf Rotary became the run title sponsor. For the first 20 years, Run with Carl provided financial support for the Carl D. Schillig Scholarship fund. In 2016, Ascentra Credit Union took over as title sponsor of Run with Carl.

After the 20th year of the race in 2014, the Schillig family had achieved its goal of creating an endowment which would be able to sustain.

In the fall of 2014 the Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation and Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation joined together to continue the tradition of the annual Labor Day Race Run with Carl to fund other scholarships and educational opportunities.

The annual Labor Day, Run with Carl is now in its 23rd year.
