If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, join Team Kennedy Krieger at this year’s Baltimore Running Festival on Saturday, October 19, to bring “Hope Through Motion” to patients and their families at Kennedy Krieger Institute!
With our charity team, we aim to increase the number of Kennedy Krieger patients able to participate in the festival, and to open the door to improved physical fitness for those with disabilities. The funds raised from this event will support our rehabilitation programs and their aggressive, innovative therapies that allow the brain and spinal cord to recover from injuries or genetic conditions. This year, you can help us reach our fundraising milestone of $1 million dollars!
Joining Team Kennedy Krieger will give you the perfect opportunity to get active and raise money for an important cause. As a member of Team Kennedy Krieger, you’ll receive lots of great benefits, including free registration for your race! If you can’t participate, but still want to support Team Kennedy Krieger and the patients the festival benefits, register instead as a Virtual Racer and participate online.
Advice from a Racer“If this is your first marathon, don’t get discouraged by the course and what time you finish. The most important thing is a healthy finish. Whether you finish first or last, your team will be at the finish line to cheer you on! After completing the Baltimore Marathon, all future races seem a lot easier!”
