Halloween Run


The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation hosted the 19th Annual Halloween Run for Justice all October long with the help of Hermes Sports and Events Cleveland. In addition to running, participants selected activities from an Olympic-sided list that included cycling, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, practicing yoga and even golfing! 

On Halloween Night we celebrated our achievements during a fun and festive virtual party! Radio Legend Ed "Flash" Ferenc and CMBA CEO Becky Ruppert McMahon co-hosted the night's festivities! As we sipped on the Signature Spooktini cocktail and Sparkling Caramel Apple Mocktail at home, we congratulated the fastest runners and cyclers; shared how many hours of swimming, paddling and kayaking were logged; announced how many miles were walked; and how many games of golf or sessions of yoga everyone got in! We will also crowned our top fundraiser, Nick DiCello who raised over $1,200 for the next generation! 

In case you missed it, you can watch the Virtual Halloween Party any time!


Each year, we are grateful for everyone's participation as it truly is a help for us to achieve our mission to provide important law-related education and enhanced educational opportunities to the students in the Cleveland and East Cleveland City Schools. Events like these allow the CMBF to fund programs that invest in the next generation of lawyers and legal leaders.
