BALTIMORE – Kennedy Krieger Institute’s ROAR for Kids 5K road race and low-mileage fun walk encourages individuals of all ages to show off their wild side and team spirit. The family-friendly and accessible festivities will return to Oregon Ridge Park in Cockeysville, Md., on Saturday, April 29. 


Starting in 2005, this annual fundraiser has raised over $3 million to advance programs and research that support children at Kennedy Krieger Institute. ROAR for Kids provides an ideal opportunity for community groups, coworkers and teams to participate in a springtime, outdoor activity with tremendous impact.  


Individuals can ROAR with Kennedy Krieger any way they’d like. Participation opportunities including running, walking, rolling, cheering or playing at the Family Festival. Finishing off the morning is the much-loved Mascot Challenge presented by Fulton Bank, where local favorites will compete in a frenzied obstacle course to secure bragging rights. 



Participants and teams can register online and build their own fundraising pages.  Proceeds can be directed to a Kennedy Krieger program of their choice or to the Institute.
