A peaceful protest in Cleveland on Saturday in the name of George Floyd went left as the protest turned into a riot leaving the Mayor with no choice but to implement a curfew for downtown Cleveland to protect the area from people that turned a positive into a negative. However a lot of damage was done and Mayor Frank Jackson in the same breath in giving an update on the status of downtown Cleveland also asked the citizen’s of Cleveland for help to clean it up.
And proving that #WeAreOne, good, bad, or ugly, #WeAreCleveland, the running group Run With The Winners ran downtown to oblige the request.
novice and more experienced marathon runners into one group.
