ELA is a partner with The Race, a 5K and one mile walk/run charity event that empowers children and their families to make a difference in the lives of those touched by breast cancer by raising awareness and money for innovative breast cancer research.
The Race has been held each Mother’s Day for the past 15 years. To date, The Race, with help from friends, business associates, and corporate sponsors, has raised over $1,250,000 for the fight against breast cancer. Proceeds from this year’s event benefit the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Beginning in 2012, The Race established a unique partnership with Effective Leadership Academy to develop northeast Ohio high school students’ skills in teamwork, leadership, organizational skills, and the importance of philanthropy. The Race Leadership Team incorporates these 21st century skills as they assist with coordinating different aspects of The Race including fundraising, event planning, and determining how the funds raised are invested.
