Contributions to local organizations
In 2017, The Cleveland Turkey Trot Charity Program continued to help local charitable organizations showcase their business, increase awareness and raise funds. Ten local charities of various sizes and interests were selected to be in the program. These organizations were recognized a number of ways via Hermes platforms and contributions were collected throughout the registration process online or from the mail-in registration form.
The participating charities assisted us in making this race the best for more than 9,000 runners by helping at registration, packet pick up, at the finish line and on the race course. Because of the success we all experienced last year, the Cleveland Turkey Trot Charity Program will continue in 2018! Applications are now being accepted.

Cuyahoga County Hope for the Holidays
Hope for the Holidays is our annual gift program for children and teens in foster care. In early December we invite children and foster parents to our building for a holiday party, where they choose a brand new toy, game, or book for themselves or a sibling. Children can also take a picture with Santa, enjoy homemade cookies and milk, and create a holiday craft.
This program is made possible by gifts from generous donors like you from churches, businesses, schools, families and individuals. Every gift makes a difference!
