The Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation and the Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation work together to organize Run with Carl.  In 2016, we raised $14,000 for each Foundation!  In Pleasant Valley it means scholarships for graduating seniors.  Thanks to Run with Carl, we’ve added six new scholarships!

Run with Carl started in 1995 as the primary funding vehicle for the Carl D. Schillig Memorial Fund. Carl Schillig, a student at Pleasant Valley High School, was 15 years old when he died in a car-pedestrian accident while participating in the Civil War Reenactment at the Village of East Davenport, Sept. 17, 1994. Carl was active in numerous school, community and church activities. The memorial fund was established by Carl’s family to perpetuate his memory and enthusiasm for life by providing college scholarships to graduates of Pleasant Valley. The first scholarship was awarded in 1998. In 2002, the scholarship award was extended to include graduates of Bettendorf High School. After 20 years, the Schillig family decided to end the race, but still award the Carl D. Schillig Memorial Scholarship.  In the fall of 2014, the Bettendorf Community Schools Foundation and the Pleasant Valley Educational Foundation joined together to continue the race. Money raised will fund grants and scholarships for area students.
