Cedar Rapids March for Babies is a national walking event of the March of Dimes that gives hope to the more than half a million babies born too soon each year. The money raised supports programs in our community that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. Funds are used for research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.

An annual event held right here in the Iowa City/Cedar Rapids area, Corridor Canstruction is helping feed our hungry and fill our food banks while showing off the creativity of our people. Canstruction combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed hungry people. Teams collect money for cans and build amazing structures -- everything from The Great Wall of China to The Lorax -- all in the hopes of winning the prize for best "can" structure! At the close of the exhibitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to HACAP food reservoir for distribution to local food pantries, crisis centers, and shelters.
