The proceeds from the 2021 4th Fest Pancake Breakfast went to three deserving local institutions, including Coralville Central Elementary School, which has a close relationship with Corridor Kiwanis. Mr. Gahan, the Principal, and Ms. Bender, the Student & Family Advocate, received a check from Jim Dane, the club Secretary, earlier this week. The two educators said that the funds would be used to help meet the needs of the students at the school and to help foster a better learning environment. The Corridor Club is appreciative of the long hours and dedication of the staff at Coralville Central Elementary to make sure every student has a quality education.

Kelly Teeselink, Executive Director of Girls on the Run of Eastern Iowa, spoke to the club about the organization which promotes a positive self-image among girls of elementary age and physical fitness. The 10 week program ends with all of the girls participating in a 5K run. Kelly also spoke about her love of ultra-running, which involves participating in runs of up to 100 miles, which can take 24 hours or more to accomplish. Here she is pictured with club members Richard Bohrn, Jim Dane, and Bill Montgomery.
