United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland, the Official Charity of the Cleveland Triathlon
Empowering children and adults with disabilities!
UCP of Greater Cleveland is proud to partner with Pacific Sports LLC for the seventh year in a row as the Official Charity of the Cleveland Triathlon on July 27th 2014! Since 2008 Team UCP has grown from eight family teams and 65 racers to over 20 family and corporate teams comprised of over 300 racers! In just six years, family, friends, volunteers and staff have worked to raise nearly $1million for children and adults with disabilities in Northeast Ohio. This year we will pass that milestone as we strive toward our 2014 fundraising goal of $150,000!

Why should I donate to Team UCP?
UCP of Greater Cleveland serves over 1,200 children and adults with a multitude of disabilities in Northeast Ohio by empowering them to live the most independent, productive and inclusive lives possible. Our Children’s Services, Vocational Services and Residential Services programming provide opportunities for our clients to set and reach goals such as walking, talking, living independently and maintaining employment. Our clients work vigorously to reach their fullest potential and at UCP of Greater Cleveland we strive to give them everything they need to reach their goals.

UCP never turns anyone away for inability to pay. Your donation directly benefits clients and families struggling with the tremendous financial burdens associated with disability services.

How can I donate?
You may make a contribution using this website
mail a check payable to UCP of Greater Cleveland to:
