MetroHealth Resiliency Run

Sat June 8, 2024 Cleveland, OH 44109 US Directions


Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
3900 Wildlife Way
Cleveland, OH US 44109


The 8th annual Resiliency Run features a 5k run through the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The unfortunate truth is that traumatic and burn injuries are common in our community, but so are strength and recovery. The Resiliency Run was created to honor this strength and to acknowledge the extraordinary people - survivors and their loved ones - who are moving themselves from the worst days to the very best. This event also honors the caregivers who provide a steady hand of healing along the way. Funds raised will benefit trauma and burn survivors who come to MetroHealth for critical care needs as well as other healthcare needs.
