Join us for the 4th Annual Cavaliers and Monsters Community Run!

The back to school road race will give participants a chance to positively impact school-aged children across Cleveland. Participants are encouraged to bring new school supplies to the Community Run, which will be donated to Cleveland Metropolitan School District's Project ACT, for local children in need for the start of the new school year. The Cavaliers Community Foundation and Monsters Community Foundation will match the amount of items donated in order to increase the amount of school supplies being given to area children. 


The following school supplies are recommended by Project ACT:

-Notebook Paper
-3-ring Binders

Proceeds from this family-friendly event will benefit the Cavaliers Community Foundation and Monsters Community Foundation. 

 The 5K run and 1 mile walk will both start at Gateway Plaza, outside of Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, and will take participants on a tour of downtown. The route will end at Gateway Plaza for a post-race party and awards presentation that will include prizes for winners in all age categories. The post-race plaza party will feature fun, family-friendly activities including Cavs and Monsters entertainment teams, the Cavs All For Fun Tour, presented by Medical Mutual,
and the Monsters Summer Tour, presented by Cedar Point.
