We are working with DPH/CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of the individuals we serve and our staff. In this evolving situation, our policies adapt based on recommendations from the experts.

Step It Up For Clearbrook @ Cronin Park
Sep 17 @ 8:30 am

Lace-up your gym shoes and join us for Clearbrook’s fourth annual Step It Up for Clearbrook. Participants can choose from a 5K run or a one-mile walk. Every step, and dollar raised, empowers thousands with intellectual and developmental disabilities to live their fullest lives possible. We have registration options for everyone—the serious runner, walker, kids, and those who wish to participate virtually. A bib and shirt are included in the registration fee. Fundraise and win some cool prizes!

Did you know if Clearbrook depended solely on state funding, we would operate with an $11,000 per day deficit? We need your support to provide the very best to the individuals we serve.
