Last year, the Above + Beyond team carried 350 memorial prayer flags to the Base Camp of Mount Everest. In January, they carried 800 flags to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This summer, our RAAM team would like to carry 1000 memorial water bottles across America as they race from California to Maryland.
If you or a friend or loved one has been touched by cancer, we invite you to create a memorial or tribute to them. The bottles will be used during the race this summer and then transformed into a work of art that will be on permanent display in the Mercy Cancer Center. There is no charge to participate in this program.
Water bottles are available to be decorated at the following locations:
- Mercy Cancer Center West Lakes: 12495 University Avenue, Clive, IA
- Active Endeavors: 4520 University Avenue, West Des Moines, IA
- Backcountry Outfitters: 2702 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA
- Kitchen Collage: 430 East Locust Street, Des Moines, IA
