Running to help Cerebral Palsy

The crowd had thinned late in the Cleveland Triathlon as awards were being given and a last few stragglers crossed the finish line Sunday on a plaza behind the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Suddenly, there was a rush to the side of the plaza, toward the finish. Team Logan was coming, and no one wanted to miss the moment.

In a scene that was repeated more than a dozen times throughout the morning, Meghann and Lance Green crossed the finish of the Olympic division together with their 4-year-old son, Logan, perched on Lance’s shoulders. Meghann pushed an empty stroller decorated with the words “Team Logan. Never let go of hope.”

Dozens cheered and Meghann was embraced in a long, teary hug by Beth Lucas, development director of the United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland. UCP is the official charity of the triathlon, and the group has helped remake the 25-year-old event that no longer is major stop on the pro tour.
