Native Iowa City habitant Ryan Wade will be running through Iowa City today as he journeys across the state of Iowa. Wade began day #5 in the town of Solon, just north of Iowa City and is expected to pick up a few runners as the day goes on. If you haven’t been caught up the run so far, be sure to check out Wade’s Campaign Page, his Facebook Page or even past Fin & Feather articles(1 & 2) to see all the action.

If you want to join in on the experience and help create awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, check out what Wade’s campaign posted about the run today in Iowa City:


“Day 5 brings Ryan Wade through Iowa City, Iowa. The plan for now is for him to leave at 8:00 a.m. from Solon High School and travel down to Iowa City. Another meeting point will be at the North Dodge Hy Vee around 11:00ish. Times are tentative depending on his pace.

Ryan will then have lunch at Pancheros Mexican Grill downtown between 11am and 1pm and continue running on towards Riverside, Iowa after that. You can run a mile or ten or twenty with him!

Please be aware that this is not an organized or supported run. We will not provide water or anything else along the way for participants who want to join so make sure to bring anything you need for your run.
