We've gone virtual! Register Today for the 12th 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!

The pandemic continues to impose some restrictions on gathering with larger groups but we are thrilled to continue the tradition of the D'Light Run in a virtual format again this year. While we await the opportunity to gather in-person to celebrate the life of Demetrius Smith, we continue to honor the legacy that has been created over the past 13 years.

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. This year each registered participant will receive a gaiter with the run logo which can be used in a variety of ways from headband to face covering.

We invite you to join our virtual run and register today.
