ROAR for Kids at Kennedy Krieger Institute

Lions and tigers and elephants, oh my! Families throughout Baltimore and surrounding communities will channel their inner jungle animals when they come together at Kennedy Krieger Institute’s annual fundraiser, ROAR for Kids. This year’s jungle-themed event will take place on Saturday, April 28, at Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, MD. Families, friends and supporters will run, walk and “ROAR” to raise awareness and funds for research and programs that help kids at the Institute. Since its inception in 2005, the event has raised more than $2.7 million for Kennedy Krieger Institute.

The fun-filled morning features a 5K run, low-mileage fun walk and a family festival among the lush surroundings at Oregon Ridge Park. After stampeding, walking or cheering on the participants, attendees, who are encouraged to dress up as their favorite animal, will enjoy the Family Festival, featuring music, entertainment, a coloring station, bean-bag toss, oversized croquet, refreshments and the always-popular Mascot Challenge!

Participants and teams may go online to register and build personal fundraising pages—all in support of the cause of your choice. Feeling more like a sloth than a cheetah but still want to support the kids at Kennedy Krieger? Interested participants can opt to Snore for ROAR and support the cause online while sleeping in!
