Benefiting Charities

The Micro Brew Mile is proud to support two great local charities here in the Quad Cities!

Children's Therapy Center of the Quad Cities

The Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities is a major service provider for children and families throughout Western Illinois and Southeastern Iowa.  It is a great privilege and responsibility to help children with developmental disabilities achieve their highest level of independence.

The Children’s Therapy Center of the Quad Cities are licensed therapists in Early Intervention Services for both Illinois and Iowa providing therapy services to children with developmental disabilities and developmental delays.

Over the years, thousands of individuals and their families have benefited from their services, regardless of their ability to pay for the services.  They are here to help answer your questions and concerns and can put your family in touch with those they have helped.

As a non-profit agency, they have the ability to visit your child in the comfort and familiarity of their own home.  Direct therapy services to children are provided only by therapists who are licensed in both Illinois and Iowa.  The Children’s Therapy Center does not use aides or assistants in direct therapy to children.

The Chris "SPEY" VanSpeybroeck Memorial

The Chris "SPEY" VanSpeybroeck Memorial is a non-profit memorial scholarship fund started in August of 2012. The primary goal of the Memorial is to educate and increase awareness of meningococcal disease and provide scholarships to graduating seniors from local Illinois High Schools (Alleman, Rock Island, Moline, United Township, and Geneseo) who will attest to obtaining the vaccination.

The founding members were personally affected by the tragedy of meningococcal disease by the loss of a son; brother; nephew; cousin; and friend, Chris VanSpeybroeck at the young age of 21.

The Chris "SPEY" VanSpeybroeck Memorial mission is to educate families and others about bacterial meningitis and preventative approaches to the disease. In particular, the Memorial is focused on raising awareness and protection among adolescents and young adults, many of whom can be protected through education and vaccination efforts.

Goals

  • To help educate families and others about the dangers of bacterial meningitis and preventative approaches to the disease
  • To support research and development of improved meningitis vaccines through the National Meningitis Association
