Race for the Place 2017


Support The Gathering Place at the 17th Annual Race for the Place!

Elk & Elk is excited to once again join The Gathering Place in celebrating National Cancer Survivors Day® on Sunday, June 4, at Race for the Place 2017.

All proceeds from the annual 5k and 1 mile run/walk support free programs, services and resources for individuals and families in the Greater Cleveland community whose lives have been affected by cancer. Last year, The Gathering Place raised over $420,000 with the help of thousands of participants and sponsors, making it the biggest fundraising event in the organization’s history.

Help The Gathering Place make history again in 2017!
