On Friday, May 3rd, the Women’s Initiative Network for Kennedy Krieger hosted its fourth annual Hats & Horses at The Grand Lodge. This year’s event was co-chaired by Cynthia Cavanaugh, Aimee Fulchino, Paige Kenney and Lisa Vogel.
With the combined effort of our phenomenal event co-chairs and committee, WIN members, generous sponsors, guests and auction donors, we raised more than $430,000 to support the children of Kennedy Krieger. Funds raised will make the much-needed renovation of the Institute’s Greenspring Campus pool a reality. The pool is used daily by Kennedy Krieger’s LEAP Program, which serves students with severe autism and behavioral challenges. In addition, the pool supports the Institute’s Physically Challenged Sports Program, which offers a variety of adaptive sports programs and is a major component of the Institute’s Motor Development Program. These renovations will allow our patients and students to continue their daily therapies in a beautifully updated pool facility!
The Women’s Initiative Network (WIN) is a volunteer organization dedicated to raising awareness and resources for Kennedy Krieger by promoting and facilitating volunteerism that assists families whose children are patients at the Institute. They provide evening meals and activities for our inpatients and their families, in addition members volunteer on WIN Wednesdays in the children’s therapy room. They do hands-on activities with the children in therapy to help break up the monotony of a long hospital stay. While the activities may seem small to some, they can make the biggest difference to patients and families who are away from all the comforts and normalcy of home.
