  • We’ve expanded Camping the Night Away to Cedar Rapids and hosted our first event in the area on October 26, 2017. We enjoyed a great business networking event with a small silent auction, delicious food, and drinks. We will be hosting our second Cedar Rapids Camping the Night Away in November 2018!

    We have partnered with the IMT Des Moines Marathon for a second year to offer individuals more race opportunities on an even larger scale through #teamCCC, Scrambled Legs & Achin! Join 7,000 runners on Team CCC and sign up for either the 5 mile, 5K, half marathon, relay team, or full marathon on October 15, 2017. Team CCC members will receive free registration, running tips, special discounts, a team t-shirt, free flapjacks at the finish line, and much more! Don't want to run? No problem!
