Yes, we want to raise money for our club but we also raise money so we can continue to support our community. Whether it is from an individual club member or the whole club the CHBC likes to get involved in many ways. Here are a few recent contributions:
Cupid's Undie Run 2017 - Cleveland
It all started with a crazy idea...
In 2010, a group of do-gooders dropped their pants and ran through the D.C. cold to raise money for research to help end neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder that can cause tumors to grow anywhere on or in the body. Meagan asked us to support this cause for an awesome friend who fights INF everyday, and on Saturday, February 4th (on a very frigid morning mind you), a group of CHBC members dropped their pants ran/walked in the 5th Annual Cupid's Undie Run. All participants in Cleveland that raised between $500 and $1,000 had their donations matched by Dan Gilbert. Our CHBC group were able to raise $4330 for the event. Total this years event raised just under $90,000 according to cupidsundierun.org.

A fantastic way to meet not only other Monster's fans and CHBC members but to get to know Cav's and Gladiator fans as well.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K Walk
American Cancer Society
A river of pink took to the streets on Sunday, October 15th, 2017.
Starting in Public Square celebrating the warriors, survivors and sharing in memorials of those lost as well. A river of pink started and flowed through the streets of Cleveland past the Q Arena, Progressive Field, Playhouse Square, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and First Energy stadium, truly this walk was a tour as well as a tribute. Tara asked for support for this walk. Not only supporting a dear friend but also celebrating her Mother and Mamaw whom are both survivors as well as remembering a wonderful woman known to many as "Grandma Hockey" (Ellen a huge Monster's fan and with her husband supporter). Raising with team "Roberta's Rack Pack" a total of $1,405.
