Several Institute events, such as Festival of Trees and ROAR for Kids, help raise significant funding for our programs. The success of these events relies heavily on much appreciated corporate sponsorships, volunteers and your continued support.

Featured Event:



ROAR for Kids at Kennedy Krieger Institute
Saturday, April 30, 2016
Oregon Ridge Park, Cockeysville


ROAR for Autism is now ROAR for Kids at Kennedy Krieger Institute, which will benefit departments and programs throughout the Institute! 

Join us on Saturday, April 30, 2016, as we ROAR for Kids at Kennedy Krieger. You can make your voice heard by joining us for a 5k run or low-mileage walk for individuals of all ages.

When you're finished running or walking, be sure to take a break and checkout the wide variety of fun activities and entertainment at our family festival! If you can't drag yourself out of bed that early on Saturday morning, go ahead and sleep-in!  Just don't forget to register to Snore for ROAR.

All proceeds from the event will help raise much-needed funds for research and programs to help kids at the Kennedy Krieger Institute.

Volunteers are Always Welcome

Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and corporations who are interested in donating their time and talents. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said that "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?" Volunteering can be a very rewarding answer to that question. Volunteers are needed for all of our special events and are always welcome and much appreciated. If you are interested in volunteering for these or any other events, please contact events@kennedykrieger.org to keep your address up-to-date in our database.
