April 29 | 8:00am to 11:30am
Despite the threat of inclement weather, more than 1,000 registered participants came to Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, Maryland on Saturday, April 29th to take part in Kennedy Krieger Institute’s annual ROAR for Kids event. The 5k run, low-mileage walk, and family festival raised nearly $130,000 to support research programs for children at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Attendees enjoyed the Family Festival, which featured the Wegman’s Wellness Village, carnival games, and face painting, and the ROAR for Kids Mascot Challenge, an obstacle course race featuring local mascots from Baltimore sports teams, high schools, and universities. Congratulations to Landon Brown, who won the 4th Annual ROAR for Kids Cara Becker Youth Fundraising Award by raising more than $2,300 for the event. This year’s ROAR for Kids was a ROARing success - special thanks to all the sponsors, participants, and volunteers who helped make this event possible!
