5k Beer Run – Toppling Goliath | Iowa BRS

We are the Iowa Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!
Join us at Toppling Goliath on June 18th for a 5kish course that starts and ends at this award-winning taproom in Decorah!
Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!
What’s included?! All participants receive:
FREE craft brew from Toppling Goliath!
Your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
Your chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
Access to event festivities, games, goodies and giveaways
And more!
We are all about being active, having fun and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural event (the Brewery Running Series was founded in Minnesota in 2012), we have been able to donate over $200,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally and go towards The Spectrum Network! The Spectrum Network’s mission is to help individuals with cognitive disabilities, mental illness, and other barriers to independent living enter the workforce and the community. So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community!

USDA Awards $1 Million Grant to Regional Health Services of Howard County

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that seven Emergency Rural Health Care Grant awards will go to rural Iowa hospitals for a total of $5,187,500. Regional Health Services of Howard County in Cresco received a $1,000,000 grant to help build a 3,900-square-foot clinic addition. This project will include nine exam rooms, three offices, three nurses’ stations, and a procedure room to support COVID-19 recovery efforts.

“These grants are big investments in Iowa’s healthcare infrastructure, so that we can care for the people in our hometown communities and rural areas,” said Theresa Greenfield, USDA Rural Development State Director in Iowa. “As an advocate for rural Americans, USDA is funding critical facilities to make medical services more modern and accessible. By moving fast to improve rural hospitals, we are helping create more positive healthcare activities and outcomes for our family, friends, and neighbors all across Iowa.”

Additional awards will be announced in the coming months.
