Annual Doc Dash raises money for area clinics

Posted:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

The annual Doc ash race in Iowa City took place Saturday morning with the largest turnout in its 25 year history.

About 720 people ran the 5K race around the university's health service buildings Saturday morning.

The race was originally intended for College of Medicine students to run and raise money for different causes, like domestic violence and local women's shelters.

But last year, organizers decided to open the race to everyone to help raise money for the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic and the free mobile clinic at the University of Iowa.

"I know the free medical clinic is just undergoing some remodels, so they're going to need some more stuff and it's great to be able to donate and provide some low cost medical care to people here," said race director, Pablo Kollmar.

Saturday Morning's run took in about $10,000, which is about $3000 more than last year's race generated.
