D’Light Run / Walk Continues Virtually

The 13th Annual D’Light Run continues virtually!  This event celebrates the life of Demetrius Smith, and honors 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.  Participants will receive a logoed gaiter which can serve as a headband or face covering.

You are invited to join our virtual run and register today.

When will the virtual run/walk take place?

The virtual event will take place through the month of May!

The event benefits the Demetrius Cameron-Lee Smith Scholarship Fund at Cleveland Montessori.  The fund was created to benefit students deserving a quality education at the school.  To date, over $15,000 in scholarships has been awarded to deserving students at Cleveland Montessori.  Demetrius, known as “D” by those who knew and loved him, was a student at the Montessori school from age 3 years old to 12 years old. He courageously fought brain cancer from age 2 1/2 and tragically lost his battle in 2008.

The Cleveland Montessori School is a non-profit Montessori school Pre-K – 8th grade located at 12510 Mayfield Road, Little Italy, Cleveland OH.
