Why Do You ROAR?

Lions ROAR, elephants ROAR, tigers ROAR... and you, too, can ROAR for Kids with Kennedy Krieger! Join us on Saturday, April 20, 2024, at Kennedy Krieger Institute’s ROAR for Kids, a 5K race and low-mileage walk for individuals of all ages.

We are so excited to be celebrating our 20th anniversary at a brand-new location: The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore! We hope we will see you there! All proceeds from the event will support research and programs to help kids at the Kennedy Krieger Institute.

There are many ways you can ROAR for Kids at Kennedy Krieger Institute!

ROAR Virtually
