Cincinnati’s community of upstanders takes over historic Union Terminal for our Upstander 5K, Family Day & Upstander Volunteer Expo.

Participants will also enjoy live music, family activities, breakfast, giveaways, FC Cincinnati activations and a pickleball tournament outside of Union Terminal.

After you finish your morning outside, explore upstander activities and experiences throughout the Children’s Museum, Cincinnati History Museum, the Museum of Natural History and Science, and the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center.
