The Salvation Army has had the privilege of putting on an annual fun-run event for participants of all ages. This water-themed run/walk has helped numerous communities in the Cedar Rapids area. Whether it be helping those with food insecurity, homelessness, or disaster relief, ‘Flood the Run’ has raised thousands of dollars in giving back to those who need it most.
Created after the devastating Flood of 08′, this fun run is a chance for people to spend a day under the sun with water obstacles, inflatables and activities, in hopes the funding would help to rebuild our community. Since then, it’s become an ongoing Cedar Rapids Salvation Army tradition!
