The annual BWI 4-Mile Run/2-Mile Family Fun Walk to benefit Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Down Syndrome Clinic

(Baltimore, MD) – For the past 25 years over 25,000 runners and walkers have laced up their shoes to raise over $500,000 for children with Down syndrome. On Sunday, September 25th, Northrop Grumman and Kennedy Krieger will team up once again for the BWI Run/Walk event, which benefits Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Down Syndrome Clinic. The family friendly event features two courses including a 4-Mile Run and a 2-Mile Family Walk; runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to attend and participate.

This year only, participants will receive a "Silver Anniversary" commemorative long-sleeve t-shirt. There will also be a continental breakfast for all paid participants, and awards for all top individual finishers and schools with the most participants. In addition, attendees will enjoy entertainment, food, beverages, raffles and random prizes.
