One Profession. One Voice.


IPA Foundation RAGBRAI Team

July 22-28, 2018
Locations TBD

The IPA Foundation RAGBRAI team is an important and outside-the-box goodwill campaign for the pharmacy profession in Iowa. Each July, the Des Moines Register holds the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) and for the last years, the IPA Foundation has sponsored a team to participate in the week-long trek across the state of Iowa.

As ambassadors for the association and our profession, the IPA Foundation RAGBRAI team connects with Iowa pharmacists and pharmacies along the route, serves fellow riders with first aid and OTC treatments, and educates Iowans on the important role of pharmacy. Any Iowa pharmacist, pharmacy technician or student pharmacist is welcome to join this weeklong adventure on two wheels, spreading the word about pharmacy from river to river.

Details for the 2018 RAGBRAI team will be finalized and announced after the official 2018 RAGBRAI route announcement in late January.

Opportunities to Participate

In addition to week-long and daily riders, the Foundation RAGBRAI team consists of hosts for overnight stops, pharmacies to donate supplies, volunteer drivers for the team and other volunteers along the way. Watch for details after the RAGBRAI route is announced.
