Race to Empower

Join Us for the Virtual Race to Empower!

We are excited to announce that UCP of Greater Cleveland’s Race to Empower has gone VIRTUAL for 2020! This will support community-wide social distancing efforts in order to keep everyone healthy.

What does “virtual” mean?

It means you can race anywhere (your neighborhood, the Metroparks, a treadmill, or any place you prefer) on your own or with family and friends, all while helping to raise funds for UCP! You have from now until July 31st to complete your selected race distance at your leisure.
