Established in 1995, the annual Labor Day "Run with Carl" was the primary funding vehicle for the Carl D. Schillig Memorial Fund. After 20 years, the Schillig family decided to end the race, but still provide scholarships. In the fall of 2014, the Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation and the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation joined together to continue the race. Money raised funds grants and scholarships for area students. In 2015, Ascentra Credit Union became the title sponsor for the race and continues this partnership today.
This year's race is Labor Day, September 3. Dick Schillig and Julie Funk joined AM Quad Cities!
