Hundreds gather for 17th Annual Walk, Rock & Run to celebrate diversity

This family-friendly event spreads messages of inclusion, acceptance and respect.

CLEVELAND — Hundreds gathered outside the Rock Hall today to celebrate diversity. The 17th Annual Walk, Rock & Run kicked off at 7 a.m.

Our own Russ Mitchell served as Grand Marshal alongside representatives from the Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio and Medical Mutual of Ohio.

The event is committed to bringing the community together to eliminate bias, bigotry and racism. Proceeds from the event support the Diversity Center's School and Youth programming across Northeast Ohio.

It's also family-friendly, so participants took part in one- and three-mile walks, or a 5K run, complimentary food, live entertainment and kids' activities!
