The 2021 24 in 24 was able to raise $447,000 for A Special Wish Cleveland Foundation! Thank you for your support, and we'll see you in 2022! #The24in24

Our 7th Annual Event has come to an end- and with your help we were able to raise $447,000 for local children battling life-threatening illnesses! Stay tuned for more details on our 2022 event!


Since its creation in 2015, The 24 in 24 has raised over $1.1 million for Northeast Ohio children battling life threatening illnesses.

The 24 in 24 features challengers attempting to run one mile, every hour, for 24 consecutive hours. Each brave athlete taking on the challenge is doing so for an even braver child from A Special Wish Cleveland. We ask our community to support the efforts of one of our challengers by donating to make a dream come true for one of our Wish Kids.

Please consider donating to a runner, or click our links above to learn more about Sponsorship and Volunteer opportunities. Be sure to "Like" us on Facebook for updates as we get closer to our 8th Annual Event!

In 2021 we will ran for Dairian, our brave 2018 Wish Kid who is no longer with us physically, but who will inspire us to do more for these kids for an eternity. #The24in24
