A United Nations of runners bridges the culture gap at the Rock Hall.

Robert Forster indie-rock Go-Betweens
Exercise your right to be yourself at this morning's Walk, Rock & Run at the Rock Hall. Literally. "It's a way to get the community to appreciate each other's differences," says Brittny Bell, an associate director of the Diversity Center. "Most of the time, we exist in our own boxes. This is a way to get outside, physically and mentally." While you do your laps, look for musical and dance performances from Indian, African American, and German troupes, with churches and cultural groups included in the mix. And once you reach the finish line, you can hit the Cleveland Clinic's healthy-cooking food stations, as you mingle with revelers of other nationalities. "We're trying to eradicate bias and bigotry by encouraging people to become more positive about their lives," says Bell. The action starts at 7:30 this morning at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum, 1 Key Plaza. Admission is free. Call 216-752-3000 or visit www.diversitycenterneo.org.
