Our Best Year Yet!!!!

It is with great pleasure that we get to say that this year’s Fourth Annual Cleveland Big Wheel Relay was a TREMENDOUS success!

_PLA0152a.jpgWe could not have asked for more perfect weather, the day-of logistics went flawlessly, and once again our event was packed with hundreds of CHCS friends and supporters.

This event would not exist if it were not for the tremendous leadership of our fabulous race participants, community supporters, and the New Partners.

Thank you doesn’t seem enough to say to all of our race participants! This year, our 28 teams, collectively raised a new fundraising record of over $30,000!!! All of the money raised from this event directly benefits the programs and services of Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center.

Special thank you to all of our local community vendors that include, Paleo to Me, Barrio, Earth Energy Treats and Tremont Tap House. Our local vendors give a portion of their sales back to CHSC and do a wonderful job serving our guests. Special thanks to Paleo to Me and Tremont Tap House for also forming teams and racing with us this year!!!

We are all pleased with our new event location, Lincoln Park in Tremont. This park has lots of grassy space so that families could put down blankets and enjoy the races. The neighbors were supportive and the local businesses were friendly and great to work with. We also had lots of media appear onsite- we had News Channel 3, News Channel 5, and Fox 8 all appear for event coverage. The Channel 3 coverage can be found HERE

_XPLA0167a.jpgSpecial thank you to our very own, associate board, New Partners. This group of dynamic young professionals delivers this annual event. Each and every member rose to the occasion, demonstrating leadership and poise as they planned and implemented another fabulous event. Special thank you to this year’s co-chairs, Anna Marie Murphy and Leo Jansen, who together kept the momentum and logistics going.
