UCP of Greater Cleveland is proud to announce the fifth annual Race to Empower 5k and One Mile Fun Run on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 9am (registration and packet pick-up begin at 7:30am). The race, which is sponsored by Medical Mutual, will start and end at UCP of Greater Cleveland headquarters (10011 Euclid Avenue) and pass along the edge of University Circle through Rockefeller Park and the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.

Last year the event attracted over 530 area runners, as well as volunteers and spectators. Organized by race producer Hermes Sports & Events, the race aims to raise funds and awareness for UCP of Greater Cleveland. The Cleveland-based nonprofit organization is committed to empowering individuals with developmental disabilities by providing tools and resources that showcase what they CAN do. Services are offered to individuals regardless of their financial circumstance, and all dollars raised directly benefit over 1,000 individuals and families right here in Northeast Ohio.

All race participants are encouraged to attend the early packet pick-up on Saturday, May 6 from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the UCP of Greater Cleveland headquarters. The Race to Empower entry fee is $20 for those who register by February 28, $25 for those who register by May 5 and $30 for those who register the day of the race. Kids under the age of 10 are free. Jogging strollers and wheelchairs are welcome on the course.

Race highlights include:

  • A custom long sleeve t-shirt and goody bag to all paid participants who register by April 21st
  • Awards to the top male and female finishers in the 5k and the top 3 male and female finishers in each age group
  • A live DJ and post-race food and drink
