Two local charities are getting big donations today; all because thousands ran.
The first "Color the Quads 5K Run", that took place in June, raised more than $50,000 dollars for local charities. More than 3,000 people took part in the unique Bettendorf race where people were pummeled with colored powder.
Today the Mel Foster Company Management team will award over $25,000 dollars to the Children's Therapy Center and the Bettendorf YMCA.
