2023 PEP Rally for Kids Raises $150,000

On June 6 Positive Education Program held its first in-person PEP Rally for Kids Fundraiser in four years. The 2023 PEP Rally for Kids brought in $150,000, the fundraising stretch goal – a total that brought PEP back to pre-pandemic fundraising numbers.

The event featured a panel of Cleveland leaders (Erika Anthony of Cleveland VOTES, John Corlett of The Center for Community Solutions and Cuyahoga County Executive Chris Ronayne) and was  moderated by PEP’s CEO, Habeebah Grimes. Students from PEP’s Day Treatment Centers posed questions they had written themselves to the panel.

Thank you

The success of the event would not have been possible without the support of our many donors. It’s this type of generosity that enables PEP to support young people to overcome and thrive. PEP would especially like to thank its Premier sponsors: Benesch, Educational Service Center of Northeast Ohio, Hyland, KeyBank, Lubrizol, Holley and Rob Martens, and OneDigital.
