More information to come

The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio has been dedicated to eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism since 1927. Our goal is to make Northeast Ohio a just, diverse, and inclusive community, a place where ALL people are connected, respected, and valued.

Proceeds from Walk, Rock and Run will enable us to empower more than 14,000 youth and educators in 11 counties during the 2021-2022 academic year. The need for our work has never been greater – and the moment to support us is NOW. Help us reach more children BEFORE they learn to hate. 

Registration info coming soon!

With our virtual Walk/Run, you get to choose your own course, whether it's a treadmill or your neighborhood streets, what time you start, and who walks six feet away from you!

Sponsorship info coming soon!

Your Walk, Rock and Run support will further our mission of eliminating bias, bigotry, and racism by underwriting our School and Youth programming.

For sponsorship information, please contact Pat Lyden at 216-752-3000 ext. 230 or plyden@diversitycenterneo.org.

All sponsor logos must be received by April 25, 2021 for inclusion on commemorative t-shirt.
