We've gone virtual! Register Today for the 11th Annual D'Light Run!

There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


Greetings Friends, Families and Supporters!

In the midst of the changes that we are all experiencing, we have Great News! The D’Light Run has gone virtual! While we are not able to gather to celebrate the life of Demetrius Smith in person, we can still honor the legacy that has been created since his passing in 2008.

The D’Light Run has provided scholarship support to students at Cleveland Montessori through the Demetrius Smith Scholarship Fund. This virtual event will raise much needed scholarship funding for the school as well as supporting our first responders at the 3rd District Police Department, including D’s parents. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, participants will receive a colorful face mask. For each registration, a face mask will also be donated to the 3rd District Police Department, in thanks for their service to the city and support of our event every year.

So, we invite you to join our virtual run and register today.

How does a virtual run/walk work?

Register on-line.

Go out to walk/run on your own or with your family. (Past participants wear your D’Light t-shirts!)

Take photos of you having fun on your walk/run.

Post your time and distance if you want.

Post your photos to the Cleveland Montessori Facebook page to show your support!

When will the virtual run/walk take place?

The virtual event will kick off on Saturday, May 23 and continue through June 30!

Face masks will be made by a local seamstress and sent to participants as they are completed.

Donations to the 3rd District will be made at the conclusion of the event.

Help make this virtual event a virtual success! Get out there and run/walk today!
