Four Mile Airport Run and Family Walk Benefits Down Syndrome Clinic

Hundreds of runners and walkers will trek an exciting course on Sunday, Sept. 28, winding around BWI Airport and Northrop Grumman as airplanes drone overhead. Now in its 17th year, the BWI Airport 4 Mile Run and 2 Mile Family Walk, presented by Northrop Grumman, benefits the children of the Kennedy Krieger Institute Down Syndrome Clinic. Top runners qualify to race in the Peachtree Run in Atlanta, and receive pre-paid, seeded entry, round-trip flights and hotel accommodations. The race starts at 8:45 a.m., and more than 1,300 participants are expected.

The Down Syndrome Clinic offers multi-disciplinary, comprehensive services for children, adolescents and youth with Down syndrome, including evaluations, preventive medical screenings, medical consultation, parent training and ongoing therapy.
