About 200 people attended Thursday's dedication ceremony of the Bix Brix walkway at the intersection of River Drive and 4th Street. Quad-City Times Bix 7 race director Ed Froehlich pointed out that the walkway leads right up to the statues of race legends Bill Rodgers and Joan Samuelson, longtime Quad-City Times columnist Bill Wundram and the man for whom the race is named, Bix Beiderbecke.

Add Your Brick to the Bix Walkway!

As a tribute to and fund-raiser for all things Bix, you, your family and your business are invited to engrave a message - immortalizing your support, congratulating a friend or family member, or just expressing a sentiment - to be enshrined in brick along the "Bix Brix" footpath, a celebratory walkway to be added to the Bix Garden on the grounds of the Quad-City Times.

Your tribute will be in good company, sharing the spotlight with the bronze statues of legendary jazzman Bix Beiderbecke, beloved Quad-City Times columnist Bill Wundram and celebrated Bix runners Joan Samuelson and Bill Rodgers. The Bix Garden graces the Times' prominent frontage on River Drive, near the finish line for the Bix 7 road race. Motorists, pedestrians and thousands of runners and spectators pass by or visit every year. It has become a popular spot to reminisce about the glory of past races and the music of Bix. A portion of the proceeds from your Bix Brix will be shared with the Bix 7 road race.

There will be a limited number of Bix Brix available.
