Throughout the year, individuals from the community create fundraising events to support the mission of UCP of Greater Cleveland. While these are not agency-sponsored events, they raise thousands of dollars each year to sustain and expand upon programming.
Upcoming community-sponsored events include:
“Thriving with Cerebral Palsy: The Cordell Brown Story” Documentary – UCP is proud to be a community sponsor for the short film “Thriving with Cerebral Palsy: The Cordell Brown Story,” which is being shown in multiple locations including Chagrin Falls, Elyria and Warsaw. This documentary highlights the struggles and triumphs of a man with cerebral palsy who was born and raised in Lorain County. For more information on show times and locations, please view the flyer.
