Join the School of Medicine for “Hike and Seek for Research,” a fundraising event and scavenger hunt in the Cleveland Metroparks Sept. 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will benefit the Research Institute for Children’s Health.

At check in, guests will receive a Hike & Seek for Research bandana and “seek” list. Attendees can post “found” items—including local entertainment, sports and news celebrity hikers—on social media to win prizes.

Guests can choose between five Cleveland Metroparks locations:

  • Brecksville
  • North Chagrin
  • Ohio & Erie Canal
  • Rocky River
  • West Creek

The Research Institute for Children’s Health seeks treatments and cures for devastating genetic-based diseases and disorders, affecting one in 30 children. Learn more about the center at

The cost to participate is a $20 donation for those ages 10 and up. Registration is available online.
