Run for Your Lives is a one-of-a-kind 5k obstacle course race where you run, jump, and climb your way to the finish—all while being chased by…zombies? But don’t just run for your lives, run for their lives—kids battling brain injuries and disorders at Kennedy Krieger Institute.
At Kennedy Krieger, our sole focus is on the problems and injuries affecting a child’s developing brain. For decades, our dedicated researchers, physicians, therapists and educators have been helping children with brain injuries and disorders across the nation on their road to recovery.
Through your support, Kennedy Krieger is able to provide groundbreaking research and critically needed care for children like Rohan, Gemma and Graeme, Matthew, and thousands of others battling brain injuries and disorders nationwide.
