Why? The Gathering Place Race for the Place!

On Sunday, June 2, The Gathering Place will hold its annual Race for the Place through Beachwood to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day and help raise funds to support The Gathering Place’s mission.

This year’s Race for the Place also celebrates the 20th anniversary of The Gathering Place, making it an even more special event. And this year’s race shirt design was chosen from entries submitted by The Gathering Place supporters and participants.

The Gathering Place has two locations (Beachwood and Westlake) and provides free services to those battling cancer and their families. These services include everything from counseling to art therapy to massage and yoga to cooking classes. The Gathering Place offers comfort, support, and needed help during a time of chaos in the lives of those touched by cancer.
