First, I did some recon in downtown Cleveland this past weekend and there are multiple places to park around the Cleveland Convention Center, which is located at 300 Lakeside Ave, Cleveland OH, 44113.
Parking – there are lots and garages close to the Convention Center, but remember there may be as many as 50,000 people in town for the Transplant Games. Lifebanc sent this link in regard to parking – PARKING
Other Info – EVERYONE walking will also wear a runner bib this year. The bib will allow you to enter the Convention Center. In regard to the info below, I have RSVP’ed to pick up the Heart Warriors packets at Lifebanc next Weds. The packets will include the bibs required for entrance. Also, I know we have a number of people that have expressed a desire to walk with us, or have just recently mailed in their registrations and do not show on our official team list HERE, I am emailing Lifebanc again today to ensure I can pick up these packets as well.
This is what Lifebanc sent yesterday –
The Gift of Life Walk & Run is right around the corner!
